The NOFA Vermont Winter Conference is a highlight of the winter for Vermont’s local food growers and eaters. We look forward to this annual opportunity to bring together farmers, gardeners, homesteaders and eating enthusiasts for three days of shared learning, inspiration, good food, and great conversation. 

With over 100 workshops, there is something for everyone! Are you a homesteader/gardener interested in growing figs or hops? A food enthusiast interested in the history and chemistry of gluten, or how to make crisper pickles? Are you a commercial grower interested in more energy efficient cold storage or producing sweet potatoes and ginger? Or are you interested in the business and marketing of farming? If a day-long intensive workshop appeals to you, you can choose workshop intensives on Elderberries, Bees, Agroforestry or Vegetable Growing. In addition, there are daily discussion groups and films.
