It isn't working lands funding. It is working Mexicans funding.

Well, when a nation gets too fat and stupid to do the work, they need to hire folks who are more capable.

Agreed. Ag is so low profile and so poor in Vermont that Vermont people don't want to do the work. You certainly can't commute from where you live to do an ag job. We need real jobs in Vermont but for political reasons we spend all our time supporting ag and keep on, for political purposes, asserting the theory that the working ag landscape will somehow attract money to Vermont that will create real jobs. How is that working for us so far Meany?

boycott Vermont ag products, the land owners should pay market rates for labor instead of hiring third world labor that didn't legally enter the country.

If Vermont wants to support farming do it another way, cheap third world labor not needed. Give the farmers and the American workers tax breaks if it's a food producing viable farming operation.
