MONTPELIER, Vt. — The public will get a chance for a close up look at farming during Vermont’s annual open farm week.

The event takes place from Aug. 14-20 and dozens of farms will be open to the public.

Organizers say activities will vary from farm to farm. Visitors may get a chance to milk a cow at one farm or sit or go on a wagon ride at another. Some farms may offer scavenger hunts, tours, pick-your-own crops, or animals that visitors can meet.

A map and listing of participating farms can be found on the Dig In Vermont website.
