It's with great sadness that we've closed this part of the farm. After being unable to attain a permit from the Town of Putney for splitting firewood at our farm we've been unable to find a location nearby to operate. The expense of renting land, buying a piece of equipment to move logs at the off-farm location, and the permitting process has made it impossible. Selling firewood (like most farm ventures) isn't very profitable to begin with, so adding burdensome costs don't work.
With the real threat of transporting invasive insects, our community's desire to be more energy independent, and the great need for young, tax paying entrepreneurs in Vermont it's with a heavy heart that we've come to this conclusion.

We've spent the last few years working hard with legislators to share our experience with gentrification and the results of living in a culture that has less than 2% of its population involved in agriculture. A vibrant, resilient community embraces diversity, which includes preserving rural heritage and the traditions of its people.

If you support our Working Landscape please talk with the members of the Putney Selectboard, Town Manager, and our local legislators. Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for those that tried to help this battle have a different outcome.
