Do you love local food and farms? Want to get to know your farmer better -- and to get a behind-the-scenes look into Vermont's vibrant working agricultural landscape? Mark your calendar for Vermont Open Farm Week: August 13-19, 2018 taking place at farms across Vermont! We're planning for another exciting event, and will post a full list of participating farms in July 2018. While you're waiting, take a look back at last year's Open Farm Week!
During Vermont Open Farm Week, you can meet the farmers, plants, and animals that bring your favorite high-quality Vermont products to your plate.
What’s the greatest part about Open Farm Week? Every farm is unique! Milk a cow and harvest a carrot at one farm, sit on a tractor and take in the smell of freshly cut hay at another. Find up-to-date lists of participating farms and search by location or product at DigInVT.com, your portal to Vermont's agriculture and culinary experiences.
With so much happening all around the state, it might seem overwhelming to plan out a fun week. To make it easier on you, we’ve created a list of events happening on each day of Open Farm Week!
