David and Michele Parker, owners and operators since 1992 of a 130-cow dairy and 9,500-tap maple sugaring farm in Chittenden, sought to build capacity for their farm’s future growth. With the help of VACC and FSA financing, the Parkers were able to purchase and renovate the Harvey Farm in Pittsford, providing them with additional crop acreage, and facilities suitable for further expanding their milking operation.
