    COVID-19 Adaptations for Farms with Direct Sales, eCommerce, and Agritourism

    As essential businesses, how are farms adapting to the evolving COVID-19 situation with no-contact direct sales, restaurant closures, and farmers markets in flux? Vermont is fortunate to have creative farmers leading the way. Farmers interested in direct sales, as well as ag service providers and others supporting farms are invited to share strategies, challenges, and resources.

    Panelists include:

    · Shannon Varley from Strafford Village Farm will talk about transitioning their farmstand to online ordering with drive-thru and delivery.

    · Alissa Matthews from the Vermont Agency of Ag will let us know where to find the latest guidelines for CSAs and farmers markets.

    · Sara DeFilippi from the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing will give an update on resources from ACCD.

    · Hans Estrin from UVM Extension will discuss new models of direct sales and produce safety.
