During Vermont Open Farm Week, you can meet the farmers, plants, and animals that bring your favorite high-quality Vermont products to your plate.  The greatest part about Open Farm Week is that you can visit one farm, or several and have completely unique experiences.

“Last year’s Open Farm Week drew hundreds of people out to farms, and gave many farmers who don’t typically open their doors to the public a chance to welcome visitors.  It was a beautiful, busy week and we’re so excited that there is enthusiasm from farmers, organizers and the public to host the event again.”  - Vera Simon-Nobes works at Shelburne Farms as the Farm-Based Education Network and Agritourism Project Coordinator.  She serves on the Open Farm Week Organizing Committee and is the Farm to Plate Network Agritourism Task Force Co-Chair.

At Shelburne Farms, guests can attend several events to celebrate Open Farm Week:

  • Monday, Augsut 14:  Moonlit Campfire
  • Wednesday, August 17 : Community Evening at the Farm
  • Friday, August 18: Sun to Cheese Tour

An up-to-date list of participating farms across the state will be available at in early summer.
