Pastoral, created by Ann and Glenn Suokko, was published twice each year between 2005 and 2010. It is a resource that features the individuals, processes, and products inspired by the fertile environment of Vermont.

Pastoral provides a context for the interaction of many creative and utilitarian expressions—visual art, design, preservation, music, writing, agriculture, and gastronomy—to provide multiple visions for positive goals. 

Ann and Glenn’s goal in presenting these stories to Vermonters and visitors to Vermont is to widen and deepen appreciation of the individuals, organizations, and businesses behind these creative manifestations.
