Posted By dpacheco On November 12, 2009 @ 12:11 pm In Garden & Agriculture | No Comments
Last Summer, VPR’s Jane Lindholm visited Cate Farm as part of an ongoing series examining what individuals and institutions across the state are doing to combat climate change. Author  Richard Wiswall ( The Organic Farmer’s Business Handbook: A Complete Guide to Managing Finances, Crops, and Staff—and Making a Profit) showed her around.
On Wiswall’s farm, they’re cutting their use of fossil fuels and converting much of their heavy farm equipment to run on used vegetable oil, and implementing other measures to try to reduce their impact and remain sustainable.
Today we visit Richard Wiswall, who owns and operates Cate Farm in Waitsfield with his wife. Wiswall has been working to cut down on his use of fossil fuels by converting much of his operations to biodiesel or electric. VPR’s Jane Lindholm visited Cate Farm to get a first hand look at the operation.
