Sarah Adelman and Robb Kidd

Sarah Adelman attended Marlboro College, then taught elementary school in New Jersey. After she and Robb met there, Robb eagerly agreed to move to Vermont. The two now live in Montpelier with their dog Ella. Sarah works as a substitute teacher and enjoys knitting and gardening. Robb graduated from Vermont Law School last summer with a master’s degree in environmental law and policy and has worked for a number of Vermont organizations that promote local business and sustainable agriculture.

A Harvest Wedding

Sarah Adelman and Robb Kidd | June 01, 2009 | 2009


Bowls overflowing with local blueberries, plates of Neighborly Farms and Jasper Hill cheese, fresh bread made by Red Hen Bakery, plus sunflowers from Gardens at Seven Gables (Barre) and Fool’s Farm Flowers (Hardwick) lining the path to a clearing filled with family, friends, and—at the end of the grassy aisle—each other (and our dog, Ella). This is how we remember our wedding day last year. After a very rainy July, the land around us was bursting with green beans, red peppers, purple delphinium, and green hillsides as far as the eye could see.

What we do

Our stories, interviews, and essays reveal how Vermont residents are building their local food systems, how farmers are faring in a time of great opportunity and challenge, and how Vermont’s agricultural landscape ties into larger questions of sustainability and the future of our food supply.
