Carrigan, Dean of the UVM College of Agriculture stated in 1956, “We believe this event has been very profitable to Vermont farmers, not only from an educational standpoint, but also because it stimulated a great many to improve their practices and to profit accordingly.” We believe that he would agree that the Vermont Farm Show continues to exemplify both the creative spirit of Vermonters and our shared rural heritage, linking the past to the future.We believe the same holds true today.

Vermont Farm Show Champlain Valley Expo Essex Junction, VT Jan. 30-31 & Feb. 1, 2018 CENTRAL VERMONT’S BEST COUNTRY A Conversation with Vermont Farm Show Manager, Jackie Folsom By Katie Moritz Why is this show important to the community and the state of Vermont? “The Vermont Farm Show offers the opportunity for agriculturists to learn the latest technology, check in with USDA programs as well as State programs and attend organizational annual meetings that offer educational components within their fields. It also showcases job opportunities for young people looking at a career in agriculture and in general promotes a positive and energetic image of our industry. It also offers consumers and others who are just curious about agriculture to visit with our professionals and ask questions and learn who we are and why we are important to the State of Vermont.” What do you think is the most interesting historical fact about the founding of the Vermont Farm Show? “The Farm Show began as a strong collaboration between the leading associations of the time and included not only dairy and maple but turkeys, potatoes and baby chicks! The most interesting thing I’ve found looking through all the old brochures is that the Vermont Dairymens’ Association, which is now Vermont Dairy Industry Association, held segregated meetings for the “farmers” and their wives - the women had their own booth space and speakers.” How has the show changed and evolved over the years? “I think the biggest change came with the moves; after the show traveled, more exhibitors came on board and live animals were exhibited by the Breeds Association. I remember staffing the Vermont Guernsey Breeders Booth in the ice area - BRRR! - and looking at the llamas in the basement of the auditorium. Moving to Essex Junction allowed all the agricultural organization meetings to occur in the same building as well as greatly expand the equipment displays, both This prestigious award recognizes an exemplary farm that demonstrates overall excellence in dairying and is a good ambassador for the dairy industry. It is sponsored by the New England Green Pastures Program, and in Vermont, awarded by University of Vermont Extension and the Vermont Dairy Industry Association (VDIA). Each of the other New England states also selects a winner. Nominations will be accepted until April 27. Information about the program, last year’s recipient and a link to the nomination form can be found at http://go.uvm.edu/vdfya. Or call Peggy Manahan at (800) 639-2130 with questions or to request a copy of the form. Farms that have been nominated previously, but did not win, may be nominated again. The judging committee, comprised of past winners, will visit each farm to tour the operation and interview the family. Nominees will be evaluated on a number of criteria including their overall farm management, milk quality, crop production and pasture quality, innovative practices and land stewardship, including environmental practices. The judges also will consider community service, including activities promoting the dairy industry and participation in agricultural organizations. The New England Green Pastures Program evolved from a challenge issued in 1947 by New Hampshire Governor Charles Dale. “I challenge the other New England states to • • • inside and out. We were also able to expand our exhibitors’ offerings by quite a bit!” What does the Farm Show mean to you? “My husband and I moved to Vermont in 1985 and in 1986 we attended the Farm Show in Barre and watched on TV monitors as the shuttle Challenger exploded in the sky. The outpouring of emotion from those folks in the ice arena as the explosion played over and over made me realize that this was a community I wanted to be a part of. I worked in the Cabot Creamery Booth for several years, as well as milk promotion - for several years, we made a huge ice cream sundae in a sugaring pan and handed out samples during what passed as Consumer Night. Then I got involved in agritourism and hosted the VT Farms Booth in the auditorium hallway - the highlight of our week was when Governor Douglas used to come for the Dairy Banquet and ask us to watch his coat. I also worked in the Vermont Farm Bureau booth and the Nationwide booth and somewhere along the line was asked to be the Farm Show board member. When we moved the Show to Essex Junction, the manager - Jon Turmel - announced he was leaving the next year, and they asked me to take a shot at it. This is my 6th year! I really enjoy the vendors - we’ve gotten to know each other and how we work, and it’s just a joy to see them year after year. I have a great team behind me. Many thanks to Glenn Rogers and Dave Adams, my Floor Managers, as well as Nan Howe who handles the website and our newest member, Steve Mease who is doing Facebook and Twitter. And also, many thanks to so many exhibitors who have returned year after year to support our show and make it grow!” UVM Extension Seeks Nominations of Outstanding Dairy Farms produce better pastures than New Hampshire, and I bet a hat that they can’t do it,” he exclaimed, eliciting a flurry of responses. Three thousand farmers entered that first competition. The field was narrowed down to 18 finalists, three from each state. A Wallingford, Connecticut, farmer took top honors for the region. Dale paid the wager with a top hat, which he presented to Connecticut Governor James McConaughy before a capacity crowd at Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, Massachusetts. In 1961 selection of a regional winner was eliminated and instead each state named its own outstanding dairy farm. Today the state winners are no longer chosen on the “greenness of their pastures” although the tradition of official recognition at the “Big E” continues with an awards banquet and presentation of a silver pitcher to each recipient. Vermont winners also are honored guests at the VDIA annual meeting and at the farmer luncheon at the Vermont Farm Show in Essex Junction. The 2017 recipient was Fairmont Farm, a 1,600-head Holstein operation, owned by Richard and Bonnie Hall and their nephew Tucker Purchase, which includes farms in East Montpelier and Craftsbury. Other recent winners were Kirk and Katrina Lanphear, who milk 440 cows in Hyde Park, and Les and Claire Pike of Stowe, who own Keewaydin Farm, a registered Jersey farm in Stowe.
