Local farmers collaborate using machinery each farm may or may not have during a crop harvest. Williamson's third-generation family farm sold off their dairy cattle and now run the farm as a pilot project for oil seeds to produce biodiesel and seed oils in a sustainable manner. Local Vermont farmers send their oil seeds to Williamson's farm for crushing and for making biodiesel fuel that Williamson charges for. Williamson's biodiesel project has received grants from the University of Vermont and the Department of Energy. (Photo by Robert Nickelsberg/Getty Images)
