Farm Bill's Expiration Leaves Vermont Ag Community To Wait And Worry
The massive piece of federal legislation known as the Farm Bill covers everything from commodity price supports to federal food assistance, and when Congress failed to pass an updated version by Sept. 30, it left many agriculture-related programs in limbo.

Our guests are Vermont Agriculture Secretary Anson Tebbetts, Bob Gray of the Northeast Dairy Farmers Cooperatives and Maddie Kempner of the Northeast Organic Farmers Association.
