New Required Agricultural Practices (RAPs) for Water Quality
As required by Vermont’s new Clean Water Act (Act 64), VAAFM has released its draft of new Required Agricultural Practices (RAPs). The draft includes new requirements for small farm certification, nutrient management planning, buffer zones, nutrient storage, livestock exclusion, and more. The Agency is now hosting public meetings throughout the state to gather feedback from Vermonters on the proposed RAPs. The final three meetings will be held next week.

12/10: Montpelier, Room 11 @ Vermont State House from 9-11am
12/10: Randolph, Chandler Music Hall from 2-4pm
The agency is also accepting written comments on the RAPs through December 18, 2015. Written comments can be submitted by email to or by mail to
