Demand for local food is surging, and many Vermont farms are heeding the call to feed their communities. They have adapted time and again to the evolving COVID-19 situation to ensure the safety of their food, customers, employees, and farms. They’re even selling products from other farms, along with their own meat, dairy, produce, maple, etc. Join us for a discussion about COVID-19 best practices for farmstands and CSA models. We’ll give an update on the latest guidelines available on May 6.
- Sara Armstrong Donegan and James Donegan from Trillium Hill Farm in Hinesburg
