81st annual Vermont Farm Show opens
ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. (AP) — The 81st annual Vermont Farm Show is opening at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction.
Visitors will get to wander among 150 agricultural exhibits from tractors to livestock to equipment. They can also view the winning jams, pickles, Christmas trees and handspun fibers entered in various competitions.
This year also includes a Buy Local Market, with foods and products from Vermont farms. And on Wednesday night, teams from the Vermont House of Representatives, Senate, and Agency of Agriculture will compete in the ‘‘Capital Cook-off’’ in which they will have 90 minutes to create a dish using Vermont products.
The Vermont Farm Show runs from Tuesday through Thursday. Parking and admission are free.
