Hundreds attend Pete's Greens opening in Vermont

CRAFTSBURY, Vt. (AP) - Hundreds of people turned out for an open house and tour of the new barn at Pete's Greens, a four-season organic farm in Craftsbury.

Pete Johnson's new, modern barn, which looks like a warehouse, replaces the farm's traditional barn, which burned down in January. While snow sprinkled the ground outside, the atmosphere was warm inside where visitors gathered.

The Times Argus of Barre says Saturday's open house was to thank people who helped Pete's Greens rebuild and keep operating. They included members of Pete's Greens Community Supported Agriculture program, and those who donated money and frequent Pete's stand at their local farmers' markets.

The building is state of the art and energy efficient. It includes several storage spaces, all at different temperatures, perfect for storing different crops.
