Gov. Phil Scott at Farm Show

Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets Secretary Anson Tebbetts will be on hand at the annual Vermont Farm Show, Jan. 29, 30, and 31, at Champlain Valley Exposition, 105 Pearl St, Essex Jct., which has been going strong since 1931 (with a couple years hiatus due to World War II).

Gov. Phil Scott said the Farm Show “celebrates the people, animals, products, and places that make up and maintain Vermont’s working landscape. It’s a time to come together and recognize the important role agriculture plays in Vermont’s culture, environment and economy.”

The event features animals, agriculture education opportunities, Capital Cook-off, Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf collection, farm supplies, food producers, meetings, new equipment, and product competitions.

Upon entrance to the show, every attendee will be given a Rooted in Vermont Passport to complete for their chance to win the grand prize.
