Event: Lunch & Tour our Farm & Barns 

Join us for Open Farm Week!

Thursday, August 8, 2024 – 1:00 – 3:00 PM

This annual event, organized by DigInVT.com, has been facilitating behind-the-scenes tours of Vermont farms for 10 years.

On Thursday, August 8, the public is invited to come experience the Farm at Vermont Youth Conservation Corps.

The Farm at VYCC is powered and led by youth and young adults participating in paid service experiences. They grow organic vegetables, eggs, and chicken; and deliver weekly shares to over 400 families managing food insecurity and/or diet related illness. The program is primarily funded by participating medical center partners, AmeriCorps, and a community of generous supporters and sponsors.  

At 1:00 we begin with a farm-fresh vegetarian lunch, made from food grown and prepared by Corps Members, in the restored historic West Monitor Barn.  

At 1:30, we will tour VYCC and hear from Corps Members (youth and young adults) along the way. We will check out 11 acres of organic vegetable, poultry and egg production, and hear about how the Health Care Share connects over 400 families with a CSA: Vermont’s largest prescription vegetable program! 

We will enter the active construction site of the East Monitor Barn (built 1901), currently being restored. 

Our farm stand will be open. 

We welcome contributions. Suggested donation is $20 for lunch and any amount is appreciated.

Lunch is limited to 10 guests.
