Tech Assistance on Agritourism & On-Farm Experiences

Steve Peters

The Vermont Farms! Association, University of Vermont Extension, & Shelburne Farms are excited to announce a free technical assistance opportunity for farmers offering agritourism and on-farm experiences. Farmers that invite the public to their farm are encouraged to apply! Sample focus areas include: pick-your-own, farm stands, CSAs, farm tours, summer camps, workshops, weddings, farm stays, on-farm dinners, festivals and more. 

This is a competitive opportunity with limited funding. The application period is open now and participants will be accepted on a rolling basis until the spaces are filled. Participating farmers will communicate their needs, then will be matched with farmer mentors and consultants. Apply online or contact program managers, Vera Simon-Nobes (802 -985-0382) or Lisa Chase (802-257-7967) with questions.
