We've just completed our "Value Added Dairy Processing in Grand Isle County Project," a feasibility study of the potential for bottling and processing local milk in Grand Isle County. To read a copy of the report, click here.
While South Hero Land Trust’s primary focus is land conservation projects, we take a holistic view of protecting the agricultural land base. By partnering with farmers and community members on innovative projects that address long-term farm sustainability and community food security, we can protect the wider working landscape of South Hero.
The Farm Initiative is an umbrella for several programs designed to support and grow the agricultural economy of South Hero and Grand Isle County. These include:
- The Champlain Islands Grown Guide to Agriculture
- Educational events at the South Hero Farmers’ Market
- Lake Champlain Islands Agriculture Network
- The Land, the Farms, and Me at Folsom School
- Renewable Energy for Agriculture Feasibility Study
- “Heart of the Islands” Open Farm & Studio Tour
