The Agritourism CoP (Community of Practice) brings together professionals and practitioners including both statewide and sub-state regional organizations to advance Vermont’s culinary and agricultural tourism industry and communicate the state's agricultural story. In the prior Farm to Plate Network structure, this group was known as the "Agritourism Task Force". The main purposes and objectives for the Agritourism CoP include: 

  • Serve as a resource for agricultural 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
  • Assist with Dig In Vermont website outreach
