Reminder: Accessory On-Farm Business Surveys

This week is your final opportunity to provide feedback to the Agency of Agriculture about Accessory On-Farm Business (AOFBs) and Act 143. 

AOFBs, such as on-farm sales of agricultural products or educational, recreational, or social events, are vital to support the long-term viability of Vermont farmers. However, Act 143 can be difficult to understand and interpret. 

Survey responses will help the agency develop a report highlighting the current conditions, challenges, and recommendations for strengthening AOFBs in Vermont. 

Click here to complete the survey if you are a farmer, or here to complete the survey if you work in a municipality or zoning office. 

Survey Deadline: September 7th
