DigInVT is a collaborative project of 11 members-based Vermont food and farm organizations, designed to be a portal to authentic Vermont agricultural and culinary experiences. Our DigInVT.com website offers a sophisticated tool for finding events, places to visit, trails to explore, and information about experiencing Vermont's working landscape. The Vermont Fresh Network manages DigInVT.com, with guidance from the DigInVT partner organizations.
Each year, in addition to managing the site, the Vermont Fresh Network helps coordinate special projects for DigInVT.com. The site is meant to offer a shared platform for all participating organizations to experiment with new marketing strategies. For example, since 2014, DigInVT has been the virtual home to the popular statewide Open Farm Week project that began with the Vermont Farm to Plate Network. In 2017 a Market Vermont grant from the Department of Tourism subsidized digital advertising for partners' signature summer events through the site. In 2017 we additionally featured Vermont escape packages with Edible Manhattan / Brooklyn / Long Island.
In early 2018 we are launching an updated and upgraded website, after 6 years of managing the current platform. This work has been supported with grants from the Working Lands Enterprise Board, Lamoille County Economy Development, and NOFA-VT.
All Vermont Fresh Network members have access to being listed on, and promoted through, DigInVT. If you are a VFN member and want more information on using DigInVT.com to promote your business, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
