Rural Vermont surveying raw milk producers for 2012 Raw Milk Report

first_imgRural Vermont is requesting all raw milk producers across the state participate in a survey on raw milk sales in Vermont. The Vermont Legislature has requested that Rural Vermont present data to the House and Agricultural Committees representing the viability of raw milk sales in the state. Farmers who sell raw milk will be asked questions ranging from gross annual sales to issues encountered with the current law. The motivation behind this comprehensive survey is to gather valuable information to convince policy makers that raw milk is a growing and important part of Vermont’s agricultural economy.Since 2005, Rural Vermont has been advocating with farmers and consumers to expand the legal allowances of raw milk sales. In July of 2009, the Un-pasteurized (Raw) Milk Bill, Act 62, took effect and created a two-tiered system for raw milk dairies. This regulatory system requires basic production standards to be met by all farmers. Farmers selling up to 40 gallons per day or delivering directly to consumers have to meet additional standards.Although Rural Vermont views Act 62 as a positive step forward, many farmers want to see additional changes to the current law.‘When Act 62 was enacted in 2009, it allowed me to double my raw milk sales,’ says Lindsay Harris of the Family Cow Farmstand in Hinesburg. She further states ‘the law established in statute our right to sell raw milk. Even though there are still ways we can improve the law, it’s important for us [farmers] to keep communicating our visions to policy makers.’ Robb Kidd, Rural Vermont Organizer, states that ‘in order for the legislature to understand necessary improvements to the law, it is important for all raw milk producers to provide Rural Vermont current statistical data to demonstrate the economic viability of raw milk and the potentials for growth.’ If you are a raw milk producer please contact Rural Vermont at (802) 223-7222 to obtain a survey.Rural Vermont is a nonprofit advocacy group founded by farmers in 1985 that advocates, activates, and educates for living soils, thriving farms, and healthy communities.last_img read more

Gold Coast homeowners behind a surge in renovations across Queensland

first_imgKyle and Kimberley Bate, with son Lennox, have put their newly renovated property at 48 Broad St, Labrador on the market. Photo by Richard GoslingWHETHER it’s to sell or improve value, Gold Coast homeowners are behind a surge in renovations across the state.Spending on renovations in the city hit almost $155 million in the year to June, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. Kyle and Kimberley Bate, with son Lennox, bought a rundown house at Labrador in 2013 with plans to renovate and extend. They’ve turned it into a seriously cool house, which they’ve recently listed on the market. Photo by Richard GoslingSurfers Paradise recorded the highest value at $14,773,600 followed by Southport ($11,614,600) and Nerang ($10,322,300).Master Builders Queensland deputy chief executive Paul Bidwell expected the figures to steadily rise, with remodelling activity in the state “very strong’’.As well as the ABS figures, Mr Bidwell said Queensland Building and Construction Commission data also showed it was already on the up.“Those numbers have been really steadily increasing,’’ he said. Kyle and Kimberley Bate have put their renovated home at 48 Broad St, Labrador on the market. Photo by Richard GoslingKyle and Kimberley Bate bought a rundown Labrador home in 2011 with the intention of renovating.“It was pretty well unliveable,” said Mr Bate, who runs ECP Constructions.Mr Bate called on the help of a friends’ mother Sandra Smedley, who runs her own building and design company, to draw up a design while he and another carpenter undertook the work. Gold Coast mansion fetches $5 million in secret sale Thinking of renovating? Homeowners are encouraged to make sure those carrying out the work were licenced.Mr Bidwell encouraged homeowners keen to renovate to make sure those carrying out the work were licenced and get a few quotes to determine whether cost expectations were realistic.“In a very busy market, if you don’t shop around, you are doing yourself a disservice,’’ he said.According to Archicentre figures, renovations with no structural upgrades cost between $700 and $2800 per square metre. Lambert Willcox Estate Agents director Mitchell Lambert, who is marketing the Labrador property, said he had noticed more homeowners taking on DIY renovations.“You get the tax benefits if you’re in the trade or you’re handy,” he said. “Not only is it an exciting project, you can treat it as a job if you’re good enough at it.”He said Australia had developed a good renovating culture off the back of reality TV shows like The Block.“It’s a really good way to build equity,” he said.“It’s come down to a question now of ‘when will it become unfeasible to renovate compared to building a new one?’” He said it was a tough job but it was worth it.“Connecting the old and the new, it just worked,” he said. The couple have reluctantly listed it on the market so they can renovate another property closer to the beach, where they plan to stay with their young son, Lennox.“Looking around, I keep having tiny little regrets that we’re selling,” he said.“We love it but just wanted to get closer to the beach.“We’re about to do the same thing, we just bought one in Mermaid Beach.” It seems we like renovating more after watching reality TV shows like The Block.
