We're a network of Vermont Chefs, Farmers, Food Artisans, and Diners.


Vermont Fresh Network has a set of core programs that we manage as part of our listed Member Benefits and also to serve audiences beyond our membership. Those programs include: 

  • The Annual Forum at Shelburne Farms that celebrates delicious food in a beautiful setting on Lake Champlain. This grazing dinner highlights the work of our members and is our largest fundraiser of the year.

  • Our Annual Members Meeting, which offers professional development and networking opportunities for both members and prospective members.

  • Fresh Feed newsletter, a monthly e-newsletter published in conjunction with that features local foods, events, trails, recommended activities, and more for anyone interested in exploring Vermont food and farms. This is complemented by the Fresh Insider, which focuses on business resources, industry news, and information for our members.

  • Educational dinners and events, which follow a different schedule each year. In 2017, for example, we featured educational boat trips and a local fish dinner at Basin Harbor, as part of the FishOn! Program. In 2018 & 2019 we produced events focused on  Vermont wines, including a Vermont Wine Week, restaurant staff field trips, vineyards pairing dinners across the state and panel discussions for both the public and for industry members.
