Building a Better Brattleboro, the downtown organization that owns the publicly used space at 153 Main St., announced earlier this year that it would be divesting itself from the River Garden because it was too expensive to maintain.

I fail to see what's so great about a bunch of cows. The farmers in this area are nothing like the older farmers that Vermont was once renown for; today they are a bunch of hippies. Brattleboro is not being built into something better. Rather, it's becoming more of a wasteland all the time.

how to avoid paying taxes on a country estate, call it a dairy farm. Get a few cows and a illegal immigrant to milk them and take care of the property and just hope to break close to even and save tons of money on property taxes and have a care taker to cut the lawn and paint things and do all the work around the county estate, oops I mean dairy farm.

Why pay taxes, only the little people pay taxes.

A horse farm isn't a farm it's a kennel for rich peoples pet horses.
A vineyard isn't a farm, it's growing grapes to make wine for rich people.
Greenhouses growing flowers & plants for landscaping aren't farms, people don't go grocery shopping at Wal-Marts garden center.

all the illegal immigrants working in places that aren't growing food are not farm workers. The people employing them are not farmers, they are criminals.

A lot of the old time farmers got out of the business in part because in order to survive they had to become freeloaders off their fellow townspeople.
