The governor's schedule this week will take him to farm meetings and a national conference in Washington.

Staff members say Gov. Peter Shumlin, D-Vermont, will attend the annual meeting of the St. Albans Cooperative Creamery in St. Albans on Saturday. This comes just days after the new five-year farm bill was approved in Washington. Shumlin will also speak to organic farmers in Burlington on Saturday at the NOFA-VT annual meeting.
