#vermontpicnic photosSeptember 6, 2020
Thank you, Vermonters, for participating in The Great Vermont Picnic this August! It was a month-long, statewide event celebrating the farmer-chef connection and Vermont's wonderful artisan food & beverage producers. The pandemic had us thinking outside the box and what resulted was this creative alternative to our Annual Forum Dinner.
Picnickers were invited to snap a photo and share on Instagram with the hashtag, #vermontpicnic. Here are a few of our favorites.
"How cute can you make your Vermont picnic? No, seriously, this is Instagram, folks! Show us that adorable picnic basket, blanket, wine glasses, cutting board, flower bouquet...and enjoy some takeout."
"Don't forget to pair a Vermont beverage or other local product!"
"Grab your blanket, family members, social distance with friends, and have the best Vermont picnic ever!"
"There are so many wonderful picnic spots around our state. Many of our members offer natural picnic spots!"
"Order takeout from any restaurant and plan ahead to shop your local farmers market for other Vermont goodies."
"Anyone can participate in The Great Vermont Picnic."
And...Vermont Fresh Network staff gathered for socially distant picnics on August 1st at Shelburne Farms to kick off the month!
