What the fundraiser supports:

Since 2002, Strolling of the Heifers has been connecting people with healthy local food, encouraging and facilitating innovation and entrepreneurship in the farm/food sector, and supporting the development of stronger local food systems. Our annual parade and festival brings thousands of people to Brattleboro, Vermont to celebrate farms, farmers and delicious local food. Sadly, COVID-19 has put this event, our main fundraiser, on hold for the time being. We are still at work on our year-round mission, and focusing on rebuilding and redirecting our programs to align with “the new normal”. This fundraiser will help sustain us while we evaluate ways to continue our mission around local agriculture and food systems.
