Steve Taylor presents Connecticut Valley Agriculture: A Continuum of Change

From First Nations people to European settlers to modern times agriculture in the Connecticut Valley has been shaped by geology, climate and economic forces. Steve Taylor will discuss the dynamic changes that have swept the Valley’s rural landscape over the centuries and suggest what the future may hold for it.

Steve Taylor is newspaperman, farmer, and longtime public official. He has lived his entire life in the Connecticut River Valley town of Plainfield, N.H. He has been a daily newspaper reporter and editor, freelance writer, dairy farmer and was New Hampshire’s commissioner of agriculture for 25 years. He is also a lifelong scholar of the region’s agricultural history and rural life, about which he writes and speaks frequently.
