Finding Assistance

Article
It’s springtime after a long, snowy winter at Blue Ledge Farm in Leicester, and some of the roads in Addison County are flooded. A nearby farmer has bought the last spring doeling, but with roads underwater, she hadn’t been able to pick her up. Hannah Sessions, co-owner of Blue Ledge, scoops up the little gal and places her in the back of a truck. The trip is just one of Hannah’s many tasks as manager of a herd of 150 goats.

As a landowner, you have hopes and dreams for your woods. Whether you’d like to create more wildlife habitat, thin your forest or restore it following a natural disaster, your dreams require the right resources to come true.

Financial assistance programs, often times called cost share programs, can help make these dreams more attainable and affordable by providing the financial support and technical know-how you need. Some of the most helpful programs come from a surprising source: the USDA Farm Bill.

But isn’t the Farm Bill for farmers?
