These photos (2.5 cubic feet) document agricultural activities in Vermont from the 1920's to the 1960's. Included are photographs of dairy, sheep, poultry, tobacco, potato and Christmas tree farms as well as apple orchards, ice harvesting, and maple syrup production. There are wonderful scenic shots of farms showing the harvesting of wheat, haying, grazing cows, farm buildings, farm machinery, and horses pulling farm machinery. There are a number of photos showing Vermont's involvement in the Eastern States Exposition from 1929 to 1952 as well as other exhibitions and fairs. The Department's attempts to control pests and combat Dutch Elm disease are also documented. These photos are valuable evidence of Vermont's changing agricultural life.
