Join High Mowing Organic Seeds in celebrating our vibrant agricultural community with Kingdom Farm and Food Days!

When: Sunday, August 20, 12pm until 6pm

Where: 1114 Marsh Road, Wolcott, VT 05680

What: Visit the High Mowing Organic Seeds showcase field on Sunday, August 20th. We'll be opening up our field on Marsh Road in Wolcott, VT from 12pm until 6pm.

Get to know a piece of the Northeast Kingdom and listen to some great music while you enjoy a corn roast, freshly fried potatoes, some free ice cream and good company. Bring your family and friends to this fantastic kid-friendly event! We will also be offering free workshops and tours of our fields.

We are happy and proud to show both locals and out-of-town-ers what we've been up to this season. Lots of time, hard work and planning go into our trials and production fields and we would love to share the fruit of our labor with you . . . literally! We will be offering tastes of some of the crops we've been growing this season, as well as hosting some excellent local food vendors.

The food offerings will include free pizza from the NOFA-VT pizza oven, a free french fry station, tasting tents, gazpacho and our yearly corn roast as well as some great Vermont vendors, including Caledonia Spirits, Carrier Roasting, Good Measure Brewing, Sumptuous Syrups and more.

There will be live music from our very own Sean n John, and RiverARTS will be hosting a super fun kids tent where they'll be making art and crafts from 12pm to 4pm.
