In rural Vermont, dairy farms, maple sugar houses, vegetable growers and vineyards characterize the region's agricultural diversity. The area is filled with hardworking farmers, but local Vermont agriculture faces more pressures than ever before and the state's iconic bucolic landscape is in danger.
Read more about the local farms along our routes and the pressures they face on our Featured Farms Page. Read more about why we created Farm to Fork Fondo -Vermont and how it supports local farms on our About Page.
All of the meals at the Farm to Fork Fondo - Vermont are the creation of Vermont Farms Catering and their talented Executive Chef Kevin Lasko.
Chef Lasko studied at the New England Culinary Institute and has long believed that Vermont, with its deep farm and dairy roots, stands at the important intersection of agriculture, cuisine and all things culinary.
Prior to establishing Vermont Farms Catering, Chef Lasko was the executive chef at the Park Avenue Seasons where he earned two stars from the New York Times, the "Best New York Restaurant" title from New York Magazine, and was named one of Forbes Magazine's "Best Eateries in New York City."
