Open Farm Week

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? Then Open Farm Week is for you and your family!

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.
