The Agritourism Task Force formed in 2013 to advance Vermont’s culinary and agriculture tourism industry and communicate Vermont’s agricultural story. The task force includes both statewide and sub-state regional organizations. The task force developed its main purposes and objectives, which include: 

  • Serve as a resource for agriculture businesses interested in developing agritourism assets 
  • Function as a community of practice -- a space for practitioners to share, communicate, and offer opportunities for professional development 
  • Identify initiatives to advance the work of Farm to Plate through consumer education and agritourism
  • Develop a referral network for those involved in agritourism 
  • Conduct some strategic planning for the agritourism industry 
  • Coordinate with the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing on how we market Vermont
  • Interact and connect with Agriculture and Culinary Tourism Council and assist with Dig In Vermont website outreach
