Basic Info
Wild Gift Class Year: 
2010
Better World Expertise: 
Sustainable Food & Agriculture
Current Occupation: 
Owner of Vermont Farm Tours
In the Spring of 2009, I launched Vermont Farm Tours, an eco-culinary tour outfit. Wild Gift supported my first year in business with the physical space to develop my ideas (the Wilds of Idaho), financial backing, and a network of peers and mentors. I remain involved with Wild Gift, serving on the Wild Gift Alumni Council. But more importantly, I look forward to regularly connecting with the wild places and people that Wild Gift has enabled me to become a part.
Impacts of My Work: 
Work with over 30 farms to show off their amazing products and stories
Introduce 1000+ guests annually to the people and places making real food in Vermont

Vermont Farm Tours is a tour company that connects guests with the stories, places, and farmers that define Vermont's unique culinary landscape.

Eat real food with the person who made it on the soil it comes from!

The mission of Vermont Farm Tours is to connect its guests with the stories, people and places that give Vermont its eco-gourmet reputation. Vermont Farm Tours offers guided half day, day trips or longer custom tours. The tours immerse guests in the connection between taste, place, and producer.

Whether you’re already visiting Vermont and want to add a unique day trip to your itinerary or looking for an unforgettable destination experience, I invite you to meet me and my community of farmers and food producers. Your participation enables Vermont Farm Tours to be a driver in the sustainable agriculture movement.

Vermont Farm Tours has become an active culinary tour outfit that annually introduces over 1000 guests to farmers, cheesemakers, food and drink-makers in Vermont.

I am also an avid mountain biker, alpine skier, nordic skier, backcountry skier, and frequent the Green Mountain Club's lodges and lean-tos. Let me take you to my favorite spots!
