Joel Hastings

Advocating for farmers and improving the environment in Vermont is the work of the Champlain Valley Farmer Coalition. Joel Hastings of DairyBusiness spoke with John D. E. Roberts, recently named Executive Director after a long career as a dairyman (and Brown Swiss breeder). He also spent several years with the state of Vermont working on environmental compliance with small farmers. Improving agriculture practices, reducing runoff and telling the public about how farmers are caring for the environment is all part of the job.
