Farms & Agriculture

Vermont's economy and culture are deeply intertwined with agriculture. As one of the most rural states in the country, Vermont's landscape is adorned with farmland, orchards, and sugarbush, making it a popular destination for agritourism. Whether you're a resident or visitor, you can experience open agriculture by visiting farms that have been passed down through multiple generations or newer operations that are just getting started. From apple picking on a crisp fall day to exploring the children's farmyard at Shelburne Farms, there's something for everyone. Don't forget to add maple sugaring, the process of making syrup, to your bucket list of must-try Vermont experiences.
