ENOSBURG, Vt. (AP) — An Enosburg Falls farm is Vermont’s 2021 Dairy Farm of the Year.

The McGarry Dairy Farm has been run by husband and wife, Diane Cotellessa and Ed McGarry since 1993 and milks about 115 cows, WCAX-TV reported.

Their son, Brian, who recently earned an agricultural degree continue the family business.

“It gives me an opportunity to continue something that we’ve grown up with and hopefully continue to excel at. My parents excelled when they dairy farmed and hopefully I can continue that and do a good job moving forward,” he said.

Judges look at family involvement, and future planning when picking the winner, according to the farm-of-the-year committee.
