Vermont Fresh Network supporters, enjoy a taste of summer in celebration and support of our local food and farm community! This summer, Vermont Fresh Network will partner with several Network members to offer a delightful picnic series in celebration of our 25th anniversary. Grab some friends and choose your location. These picnics celebrate summer’s flavors and showcase Vermont farms and chefs. A portion of each ticket goes to support Vermont Fresh Network and our mission to cultivate the farmer-chef relationship.

On Saturday, August 7, feast on the summer bounty with a picnic along the shores of Lake Champlain at Shelburne Farms! Shelburne Farms Executive Chef John Patterson and the kitchen team at the Inn have created a menu featuring local farms and produce organically grown onsite at the Market Garden. Pick up your picnic at the Coach Barn in a canvas tote bag along with your Vermont Fresh Network picnic blanket. Explore the grounds to find your perfect picnic spot, lounge along the shores of Lake Champlain, or wander up to the Formal Gardens at the Inn to catch one of Vermont’s finest sunsets.
