Celebrate and Explore Agriculture All Across Vermont!
Planning is underway for the 5th Annual Open Farm Week, August 9th through the 15th. Each year Open Farm Week invites enthusiastic Vermonters to experience and connect to their local food system. Dozens of local farms participate offering a variety of activities, farmer interaction and unique events including wagon rides, scavenger hunts, pick-your-own crops, animals to meet and much more.
Our Open Farm Week team is available to provide resources & technical assistance to a limited number of farms that would like support developing ideas and preparing for visitors. Vera Simon-Nobes of the Farm-Based Education Network and Lisa Chase of UVM Extension can help you develop an event that's right for your farm and community, along with a timeline, marketing plan, and safety plan. There is no additional charge for this technical assistance, but you do need to apply for it by May 15th. General registration for farm participation will run until July 1st.
Registration is open now! Find more information at: https://www.diginvt.com/blog/openfarmweekforfarmers/
