International Workshop on Agritourism
Pre and Post Tours around Vermont
August 28 - 29 and September 2 , 2022
Origins of Food is excited to be partnering with the International Workshop on Agritourism Planning Committee to welcome people from around the world to the Green Mountain State and showcase a wide variety of Vermont farms and food producers.
We will be hosting a series of day trips departing from Burlington with a variety of themes (see below). These tours will showcase the very best of agritourism in Vermont with a variety of farms, food and fiber producers. With a focus on small and medium scale working farms, it is important to us that we compensate farmers and producers for their time, which is reflected in the ticket price.
Fill out this form to let us know which tour(s) you want to add your name to and we'll be in touch with payment options.
These tours are now open to the public! You do not need to be attending the IWA conference to join a tour.
