Vermont Business Magazine For the eighth year in a row, Vermont Farmers will once again open their barn doors and yard doors to welcome the public for a behind-the-scenes look at Vermont’s dynamic working landscapes. Vermont Open Farm Week 2022 will be held Sunday, August 7 through Sunday, August 14 and will feature over 105 events at over 53 farms across the state. Events are live and sorted by day and location on DigInVT.com.
Open Farm Week is a celebration of Vermont farms offering visitors a behind-the-scenes pass to learn about local food origins, authentic agritourism experiences, and the chance to network with local farmers.
Farm visitors can expect maple and honey tastings, yoga for kids on the farm, ice cream socials, behind-the-scenes tours, farm dinners, 5 km, pie contests and much more!
Each Open Farm Week event is created by a farmer and aims to showcase the uniqueness of the host farm.
“Open Farm Week is Vermont at its best. Visitors get an authentic experience visiting and talking with farmers and growers,” said Vermont Secretary of Agriculture Anson Tebbetts. “These tours shed light on how our food is produced and how farmers take care of their animals and their land. We are grateful to those businesses that open up their daily lives to hundreds of visitors during Open Farm Week. »
Open Farm Week events are now live online! Many events are free and some require pre-registration. Not all farms are open every day, so be sure to visit DigInVT.com to explore the diverse calendar of events and plan a visit. Everyone is invited to join the Open Farm Week conversation on social media using the hashtag #VTOpenFarm.
