The Kingdom Farm and Food Days annual event on Aug. 17-18, 2013, is a celebration of Vermont farms, local foods, gardens, small producers, and agricultural businesses. Workshops, food and tours will be available to all attendees. KFF is presented as a collaboration between the Center for an Agricultural Economy (CAE), NOFA Vermont, High Mowing Organic Seeds (HMS), Pete’s Greens, and the New England Culinary Institute (NECI). 

Saturday, August 17: Caledonia and Orleans Counties, Vt.

Join the CAE for a morning caravan tour of regional agricultural organizations. Go behind the scenes at each individual business. Participation cost is $25. Personalize your tour route by selecting from the list of open farms organized by NOFA-VT. All participating farmers have generously opened their facilities from 8 a.m. to noon for KFF attendees; farm demos and activities vary from farm to farm. Ride in a tractor-pulled hay wagon for a tour of the farm production fields at Pete’s Greens, followed by a walking tour of the processing facility. Learn how the facility works and meets the needs of this four season CSA and wholesale farm.

Sunday, August 18: Wolcott, Vt. – 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., followed by music and a bonfire.

Join High Mowing Organic Seeds for tours of the HMS trials field, led by HMS and Bejo representatives. Workshops for gardeners and growers include seed-saving, herbal gardening, and vegetable fermentation, gleaning with the Vermont Foodbank, a seed swap, and children’s activities hosted by the Lamoille Valley 4-H club.

Join NECI for their farm-to-table showcase meal served in the field, prepared with HMS produce and food donations from area farms. Compare the flavors and textures of vegetable varieties at the tasting station and enjoy fresh fire-roasted corn on the cob. Boogie down with Granite Junction string band and network at the bonfire.
