Family Farms, Agriculture, and Pastoral Landscapes are abundant throughout the State of Vermont. Vermont's abundance of farmland is popularly captured in the postcard images of cows grazing in the sweet green rolling fields. Vermont is well known for many aspects of its farm community: maple syrup, fine cheeses, pastoral landscapes, Morgan horses, family farms, and innovative, responsible practices. Farms and farmers are a huge part of the Vermont landscape and economy.
Nearly a million and a half acres of Vermont land are in agriculture, sustaining the pastoral landscape that has made Vermont famous. Dairying is the primary farm industry in Vermont, producing approximately half the milk consumed in New England. Vermont is America's largest producer of maple syrup and also produces substantial crops of Macintosh apples, potatoes, eggs, honey, vegetables, Christmas trees, lumber, pulp wood, and green house nursery products.
Vermont has always been known for it's natural beauty. In a state where billboards are illegal, you would expect the landscape to be dominant. It takes an army of lawn and garden experts to keep Vermont's public and private property looking it's very best. From mowing and snow plowing to garden design and large construction landscaping projects, landscapers help keep Vermont's spectacular beauty alive.
