Good News for Vermont Pastures - Spring, 2004

Vermont's pastures have benefited from a good snow cover which persisted through most of the winter of 2003-2004.  Snow acts as an insulating layer, protecting the grass from harsh, drying winds and extreme temperatures.  We are often amazed at how, in the dead of winter, we can shovel off a snow layer and actually find lush green grass underneath.

Recent early spring rains - draining down through the slowly disappearing snow - have improved the water table considerably, promising a lush pasture for our free-range poultry in the coming season.
