A home-grown farm in Barre Vermont expands and supports clean water

Farming is a tough business. But it pays dividends far beyond income, by preserving Vermont’s agricultural heritage, supporting jobs, and providing local food. That’s why are committed to helping farmers create a path to land ownership.

At Old Soul Farm, Matt Systo and Kim Rich have joined with VLT to expand their farm to better serve a community that has limited access to local food options. They are also supporting the restoration of woodland along the nearby headwaters of the Winooski River, which will improve water quality in the river and in Lake Champlain.
