In Ryegate Corner, VT the Nelson family farm has been in continuous operation since before the American Revolution. Originally part of settlements by Scottish immigrants, the farm is located near the Connecticut River offering easier transportation of goods then and now. The Nelsons also discuss farming history and its role as an economic engine.
