The Farm Show is Vermont’s largest agricultural showcase. For agricultural professionals, it is an opportunity to meet with vendors, preview products and machinery, attend trade association meetings, and network within the greater farming community.
The show also holds wide appeal for the general public. With tractors, live animals, and agricultural products on display, there’s something for everyone at the Farm Show. Young and old alike flock to Consumer Night to see, taste and buy Vermont products during the Buy Local Market and the Capital Cook-off.
The Farm Show is many different things to our diverse agricultural population. This winter gathering exemplifies both the spirit of Green Mountain agriculture and our shared rural heritage, linking both the future and the past.
Our thanks to Bob Eddy for preserving this moment with Annie Burke.
