A: Each Breakfast on the Farm event is a little different, but many of the activities are similar. No matter where you go you will get to tour the farm, see animals, talk with farmers and enjoy a great breakfast filled with Vermont-grown and Vermont-made products!

Q: What should I wear to Vermont Breakfast on the Farm?
A: Remember: this is a farm and you will be spending time outside. We recommend comfortable, temperature-appropriate clothing, comfortable shoes and you should be prepared if there is rain. Farms will also provide booties to go over your shoes when touring the grounds. This will keep your shoes clean and keep anything that might harm the animals out of the barns.

Q: What should I bring?
A: It depends. If you are bringing young children, you may want to consider bringing a stroller or carrier as there will be some walking involved. Sunscreen and a camera are recommended. You may want to bring an umbrella or poncho if rain is in the forecast.

Q: I have traveled out of the United States recently. Can I still attend?
A: Our Vermont farmers prioritize the safety of the food that they produce. If you plan to travel outside of the United States in the week before the event, please contact us to verify if you can attend.

Q: What if I’m disabled? How will I be able to enjoy the experience?
A: On many of the farms, there will be concrete throughout the barns which will make maneuvering in a wheelchair easier. However, there will be unavoidable dirt or grass areas, as well. It is best to contact us to determine the specific environment and identify any adjustments that can be made.

Q: Can I bring my dog to Vermont Breakfast on the Farm?
A: With the exception of service animals, dogs and other pets are not allowed on the farms during the events.  This is a biosecurity practice aimed to prevent disease transmission; protecting the health of the livestock and other animals on the farm.
