Take Action on GMOs

This week the VT Attorney General’s office released their DRAFT rule for the implementation of the labeling law and they also announced a series of three public hearings to gather public comment on the draft rule. The schedule for the public hearings is available here. At the hearings the Attorney General’s office will make a presentation and then there will be opportunity for questions. Members of the VT Right to Know GMOs Coalition will be available at the hearings. This is just the first opportunity for the public to express their opinions about how the GMO food labeling law will be implemented.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Open Barn Party at the Larson Farm in Wells. About 75 folks joined us for an afternoon of farm tours, live music, demos, and quality time with the cows, along with plenty of homemade treats & raw milk, and chatter about some recent policy changes that impact raw milk producers and their customers.
