Brattleboro festival highlights family farming

Print More

Organizers of this weekend’s Strolling of the Heifers in Brattleboro hope folks joining in the fun will take away a serious message. They say Vermont’s farm economy has been in trouble for years and new, creative ways are needed to help it survive.

The highlight of the annual event is a parade of heifers through downtown Brattleboro, set for Saturday morning at 10. But other events include a discussion Thursday night on family farms, which are widely viewed as in need of improvement.
