Description

The town of Addison is the flattest and the most fertile part of Vermont. The plain extending west to Lake Champlain was the bottom of a glacial lake and post-glacial estuary from 14,000 to 11,000 years ago. The clayey sediments are more than 30m deep in places. The soils are slow to dry and require powerful equipment to work, but the high cation exchange capacity of the clays allows great natural fertility. About 90% of the field crops here are corn and hay for dairy feed -- this is where Ben and Jerry's ice cream starts.

I counted about 180 silos in the scene.
