In celebration of Clean Water Week, VGFA is hosting a pasture walk and conversation about cows and water quality at Health Hero Farm in South Hero, VT at 10:00 a.m. on Sat. August 4th. Follow the link for more information.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2018 Grazing and Livestock Conference. Some of the presentations were recorded. We will post links to the recordings as they become available.

The Vermont Grass Farmers’ Association (VGFA) was founded in 1996 with support from the UVM Center for Sustainable Agriculture and USDA-NRCS. The VGFA is a 501(c)3 non‐profit with the mission to promote, manage and oversee grazing outreach and education programs in Vermont.

VGFA’s members are farmers, landowners and citizens who seek to:

  • Support farming that enhances soil health and water quality
  • Build farmer-to-farmers learning opportunities
  • Uphold the viability and resiliency of Vermont’s livestock farms
