Vermont Open Farm Week 2020 Live With The Farm

Vermont Open Farm Week 2020 Live With The Farm

This year Sugar Feather Farm participated virtually  in the 2020 Vermont Open Farm Week. We had a wonderful time being a part of this Vermont tradition. We decided because of the pandemic, to do 3 virtual events  on Facebook Live.

During the 2020 Vermont Open Farm Week, you can meet (virtually, or in person) the farmers, plants, and animals that bring your favorite high-quality Vermont products to your plate.

What’s the greatest part about Open Farm Week? Every farm is unique! Find up-to-date lists of participating farms and search by location or product at, your portal to Vermont’s agriculture and culinary experiences.

What can I do at the farms?

  • The activities will vary from farm to farm. Some farms might have demonstrations and tours. Others may have pick-your-own crops, produce for purchase, or animals that you can meet. As mentioned above, this year’s events will focus on those that fit the current pandemic-related social distancing guidelines.

Nicolle of Sugar Feather Farm was live on Facebook on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday to share more about the rare, unique, and heritage types of fowl raised on the farm! The Lunchtime Live lasted for about 15 minutes. Specific topics are outlined below:

They sell their hatching eggs, babies, and teenage fowl directly to consumers. Customers purchase these birds for their home, business, farm, school, or events. They can be pets or producers. They are available for on-farm pickup or delivery all over the USA. They also offer some value added products like non-GMO fresh fowl feed and honey from their own bees.
