#vermontpicnic photos

September 6, 2020

Thank you, Vermonters, for participating in The Great Vermont Picnic this August! It was a month-long, statewide event celebrating the farmer-chef connection and Vermont's wonderful artisan food & beverage producers. The pandemic had us thinking outside the box and what resulted was this creative alternative to our Annual Forum Dinner



Picnickers were invited to snap a photo and share on Instagram with the hashtag, #vermontpicnic. Here are a few of our favorites.

"How cute can you make your Vermont picnic? No, seriously, this is Instagram, folks! Show us that adorable picnic basket, blanket, wine glasses, cutting board, flower bouquet...and enjoy some takeout."
