About Agriculture Jobs in Vermont
We feature the best agriculture jobs in Vermont with new jobs being posted weekly.
Most of Vermont’s land is mountainous and rocky, making it a great place to raise livestock such as cattle, sheep, goats, and llamas. The terrain is a testament to Vermont’s nickname, Green Mountain State, named after the Green Mountain ridge that runs through the center of the state.
There are also other mountain ranges: the Appalachian, Hoosac and Taconic. The land is also excellent for growing hay, and Vermont is New England’s largest hay producing state. Dairy products make up over 70% of Vermont’s agricultural economy.
Most of the major cattle breeds are found in the state, along with many breeds of sheep, llamas, alpacas, goats, chickens, turkeys, emus, and rare types of poultry. Vermont is famous for being home to the Morgan horse breed.
A variety of crops are also produced, including apples, honey, corn, Christmas trees, maple syrup, and more. More than 7,000 farms with an average size of 177 acres work to produce these basic products.
