Wed, 15 Nov 2017 23:01:55 EST

Over the last eight years, state winery sales have gone up by more than 120 percent, while tobacco sales have fallen by nearly 40 percent, according to a new study by the UConn College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources. Speaking Wednesday during the 17th annual meeting of the Working Lands Alliance, Rigoberto A. Lopez, director of the university's Zwick Center for Food and Resource Policy, said the study of agriculture changes between 2007 and 2015 shows strong gains for cattle ranching and farming; vegetable and melon farming; seafood preparation and packing; and milk and butter making.
