The Farm to Plate Network is responsible for collectively implementing the 25 Farm to Plate goals of Vermont’s food system plan as well as advancing their own organizational goals. The Network encompasses farms, food production businesses, specialty food producers, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, capital providers and government. Working Groups, Cross-cutting Teams, and Task Forces convene to work on high impact projects to relocalize the food system that no one organization can do alone, as well as assess gaps, opportunities, and trends and monitor progress towards reaching Vermont’s Farm to Plate goals.

The Network section of the website outlines the Network groups and acts as the communication forum for Network members to share information, send messages, keep up-to-date on Farm to Plate activities, and stay connected to each other. A login is required for Network members to access full information in this section of the website. 

In 2021, the Farm to Plate Network structure of implementation groups was re-organized to reflect the high priority recommendations / strategies coming out of the new Farm to Plate Strategic Plan 2021-2030. We are currently working to launch an updated website in 2022. In the meantime, please take the below Network Survey to sign up for the new network structure groups.


Farm to Plate Network Survey 

The Farm to Plate Network has created a new network structure built around the Vermont Agriculture and Food System Strategic Plan 2021-2030. In this new structure, members will convene through Network Wide Exchanges, Priority Strategy Teams, Topic Exchanges, and Communities of Practice. If you'd like to be involved in this exciting Vermont agriculture and food system work, please take a few minutes to fill out this important survey so you can select the areas of the food system where you'd like to be involved. Your participation will be extremely helpful as Farm to Plate convenes new groups and transitions from their current website to a new site in early 2022.
