Organic farming seems so ingrained in our local culture that it’s hard to believe it was a kind of radical idea just fifty years ago.
But a new exhibit at the Vermont History Museum is bringing to life the stories of some small-scale farmers in the 60s and 70s who were among the first to pioneer organic farming methods.
Susan Harlow is an agricultural writer and editor. She conducted over 40 hours of interviews with the subjects of the photographs. She spoke with Vermont Edition about the exhibit.
