The pastures are greening, trees are budding out, and… it’s Spring time!  Here in Vermont spring brings the promise of more sunlight, more time outside, and more farm fresh foods to be enjoyed.  In other words, it is time for farm touring and starting May 19, Vermont Farm Tours opens its fourth season.  

Vermont Farm Tours is a culinary tour company based in Burlington, VT that offers personal tours led by local food and wine expert, Chris Howell.   Rooted in his experiences as a farmer, educator, and community organizer, Howell provides an unforgettable journey through the local terroir and cultivates an authentic interest in local foods by immersing guests in the connection between taste, place, and producer.  

This year, groups of any size can enjoy a variety of engaging biking, walking, and van tours and guided tastings.

Though he eagerly celebrates the pleasure of local food and farms, Howell also sees farm touring as a critical tool for building community and sustainable local economies. On that, Howell notes, “I strive to promote local food and sustainable agriculture by educating people from diverse backgrounds about the hands and places that produce our food.  Vermont Farm Tours supports a regional food system by partnering with local small businesses, farmers, and artisanal producers.”  

Vermont Farm Tours has been in operation since 2009 and has won numerous accolades including recognition as one of Vermont’s 2011 Best Attractions by Yankee Magazine.
