Open Farm Week is August 3-9, 2015. It is a statewide event being put on by DigIn Vermont. The following information is from the DigIn team.
Open Farm Week is an opportunity for you to spotlight your farm and showcase your products. Whether you sell directly to consumers or wholesale markets, farms of all kind are encouraged to participate. If you are not usually open to the public, that’s okay too. We will provide you with resources about managing safety and liability, as well as what guests will expect when coming to your farm. Please plan for some ways to engage consumers while they are visiting. You may want to provide tours or other activities such as seed planting, tastings, scavenger hunts, or on-farm dinners for folks to engage in.
For more information and to sign up to participate, please fill out this form: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VTOpenFarmWeekRegister
We will be providing each participant with outreach materials so you can help us engage consumers in your area of the state. Sign-ups end on July 1st but please consider signing up early in order to begin marketing your participation in this event sooner. Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org We look forward to working with you!
