The Williamson family has owned the 130 acre State Line Farm in Shaftsbury, Vermont, since 1936. For many years, State Line was a Guernsey dairy farm, but low milk prices and family health problems caused us to sell the herd. Finding new self-sustaining crops and products was crucial to keeping our family farm. That need led to State Line Farm ‘Biofuels.’ With the help of Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund and University of Vermont Extension, we became one of Vermont’s first on-farm facilities producing biodiesel made from oilseed crops. This endeavor, along with other farm products, has keep us going. We like the idea of being self sustainable and we do our best to put that thought into everything we do.
In addition to processing seed oils and producing biofuel, we also produce:
- Maple syrup, honey, sorghum syrup
- Hay (round and square bales) and straw
- Livestock grains and food grade oil
