Introducing The Great Vermont Picnic

July 9, 2020

This August, we invite Vermonters across the state to celebrate the farmer-chef connection with Vermont Fresh Network’s Great Vermont PicnicThis month-long picnic event is our creative alternative to what would have been our 24th Annual Forum Dinner.

We are the Vermont Fresh Network! Let’s showcase Vermont partnerships, promote restaurants and producers, and celebrate local businesses.

In light of the pandemic and increase in virus cases this summer, let's continue to practice social distancing, dine outside, all while supporting food & farm businesses. Because we've cancelled what is usually our largest fundraiser (the beloved Annual Forum Dinner), we are running a GoFundMe campaign alongside the The Great Vermont Picnic to ensure the longevity of our organization.
