Tropical Storm Irene
We are all fine and Liberty Hill Farm is Open for Business! Cows are milking, calves are mooing, and Beth is Cooking!!
All of us at Liberty Hill Farm want to thank each of you who have so graciously contributed your time and resources to help our farm, our family, our town and the many other families and communities throughout Vermont recover from the impact of T.S. Irene. Our farm was only one of 462 farms that were hit by Irene, so we feel honored to represent the VT agricultural community and the farmers of Cabot Creamery Cooperative by participating in the VT Strong license plate fundraiser. Cabot Creamery Cooperative asked me to share my recipe for Turkey Pot Pie with everyone on the envelopes for the VT Strong license plate. My son Tom and his family raise turkeys and we cooked several turkeys in the days after Irene to help feed volunteers who came to the farm. Turkey is also a reminder of Thanksgiving and we are so very Thankful for the contributions from folks throughout Vermont and all around the country to the VT Disaster Relief funds and to the Rochester Relief funds. Governor Shumlin and his administration, the VT legislators, Vermont Community Foundation, the University of VT Extension, and many other people and organizations have all worked together to help Vermonters recover from Irene, but we could not continue without the warm thoughts and caring of each of you.
Thank you all! ! Bob and Beth
