Blue Spruce Farm

Bridport, VT
3,000 acres

Building a family

Norman and Mary-Rose Audet of Bridport, Vermont purchased the Blue Spruce Farm in 1958, and they quickly went to work raising a family of five and building a farm for the ages. Of the five adult Audet children, four work full-time with their families. The fifth returns each summer to work with her family as well. And if that weren't enough, the third generation is now entering the work force. Their career choice? Return to their roots and work the family farm they love so much. Says Marie Audet, wife of oldest son, Eugene: "This is not an easy way to make a living, and we have to become extremely efficient in every area of our operations in order to survive a volatile dairy market." How do they do this exactly? Well, the Audets are not only remarkable dairy farmers; they are also leaders in recycling and bioenergy.
