Event Type:


August 15, 2016 (All day) to August 21, 2016 (All day)




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 15-21, 2016 taking place at farms across Vermont! 

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, your portal to Vermont's agriculture and culinary experiences.


  • When will the list of participating farms be ready?
    • Check back to see participating farms in June. We will have even more Open Farm Trails and Events ready for you by mid-July.
  • What can I do at the farms?
    • The activities from farm to farm will vary. Some farms might have scavenger hunts or wagon rides. Others may have tours, pick-your-own crops, produce for purchase, or animals that you can meet. When you arrive at a farm, check in with a farm employee to see what will be offered during your visit. 
  • What should I wear, and what should I bring to the farm?
    • Weather in August can be unpredictable!  Dress in layers and wear close-toed shoes that can get muddy.  Bring along a water bottle, bug spray, rain gear, sunscreen and a camera!  You may also want to bring a cooler, in case there are items you’d like to purchase during your visit.
  • Will there be food at the farm?
    • Some farms will be serving food, but look at each farm’s listing to confirm what they are offering.
