Vermont residents' median household income between 2002 and 2004 was $45,692, placing the state 15th nationally for this statistic. The median wage in 2008 was $31,845 annually.
Agriculture is important to Vermont's economy, contributing roughly 2.6 billion each year. Dairy farming is the primary component of the agricultural income. Although the government has enacted laws to protect land from being over-developed for housing, the number of dairy farms has shown a decline in recent years. The number of cattle has declined, but milk production has doubled because of tripling production per cow. Organic farming has risen in popularity. There were 553 state-wide organic dairy farms and 128 organic vegetable farms in in 2009. The manufacturing and selling of organic foods, fancy foods and novelty items has boosted the state's economy in recent years. Some examples are Cabot Cheese, Fine Paints of Europe, the Vermont Teddy Bear 河南福彩app下载, Vermont Butter and Cheese 河南福彩app下载, Burton Snowboards, Lake Champlain Chocolates and Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream. Additionally, about 2,000 producers sold maple products in 2010.
