Margo Ghia – District Manager
Margo Ghia discovered her connection to the environment and conservation during her college years at the University of California Davis, where she graduated with a BS in Environmental Policy and Planning.

Their daughter, Abbie, works on the farm with them when she’s not busy with her 2 sons, (born in 2010 and 2014). Their farm has been in Leon’s family since 1868. It is an organic dairy shipping their milk to CROPP/Organic Valley.  They have a 55 cow mixed breed herd of mostly black & white  holsteins, along with some red & whites, jersey crosses, a couple of Finnish Reds & 1 blue holstein.  to CROPP/Organic Valley. Their farm is at 2000′ elevation in the Green Mountains in the Deerfield River and subsequently the Connecticut River watershed. Linda is chair of Windham County NRCD, as well as treasurer of the Connecticut River Watershed Farmers Alliance, and secretary for the Vermont Association of Conservation Districts. On their own or with cost sharing from NRCS the Corses have installed many conservation practices.
