August 21-22nd – Kingdom Farm and Food Days (Formerly High Mowing’s Field Days)
High Mowing Organic Seeds, Center for an Agricultural Economy and New England Culinary Institute are once again hosting the Kingdom Farm & Food Days, a free, fun-filled event in celebration of good food and  Vermont agriculture. Participating farms in the Northeast Kingdom will open their doors to the public; visitors will get an exclusive tour of the Cellars at Jasper Hill, a chance to see the milking at Bonnieview Farm sheep dairy, a farm and greenhouse tour of Pete’s Greens, and more!  The Craftsbury Outdoor Center will lead a scenic bike tour of area farms, and the day will end with a pig roast at Pete’s Greens in Craftsbury.
There will be live music, workshops on seed saving, pest and disease identification, and an evening bonfire. This community-wide and family-friendly event is free, with suggested donations or small fees to some of the exclusive events.
