Vermont Business Journal For the eighth year in a row, farmers across Vermont will once again open their barn doors and garden gates to welcome the public for a behind-the-scenes look at Vermont’s vibrant 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 listed by day and location on DigInVT.com.
Open Farm Week is a celebration of Vermont farms that offers visitors a pass to learn more about the origins of local food, authentic agritourism experiences and the opportunity to build relationships with local farmers.
Farm visitors can look forward to maple and honey tastings, kids’ yoga on the farm, ice cream socials, behind-the-scenes tours, farm dinners, 5k races, pie contests and much more!
Each Open Farm Week event is created by a farmer and focuses on highlighting the unique character of the host farm.
“Open Farm Week is Vermont at its best. Visitors get an authentic experience while touring and talking with farmers and producers,” said Vermont Secretary of Agriculture Anson Tebbetts. “These tours highlight how our food is produced and how farmers care for their animals and their land. We are grateful for these 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 advance registration. Not all farms are open every day, so be sure to visit DigInVT.com to explore the schedule of different events and schedule a visit. Everyone is invited to join the Open Farm Week conversation on social media using the hashtag #VTOpenFarm.
