2018 Vermont Farm to School Case Studies

What's happening with the Farm to School movement in Vermont?

Vermont schools are embracing a wide range of Farm to School experiences. In order to illustrate how Farm to School programming could work in early care and K-12 schools, we chose five examples from across the state. They are diverse not only in experiences but also in terms of the size of the student population, grade level, socioeconomic representation, and approaches to Farm to School. The interviewers spoke with teachers, parents, community members, administrators, food service directors, and kitchen managers, and found many paths to success. These evolved into case studies, which serve as tangible inspiration in recognizing there is not only one path to integrating a Farm to School program at a school or early care site. Each case study represents a unique journey, aligned with its own school’s priorities.

These case studies are a project of the Vermont Farm to School Network, University of Vermont Extension, and Vermont FEED
