The Farm to Fork Fondo - Vermont bike event combines road biking with a foodie tour. Participants ride on a predetermined premarked course, visiting local farms throughout central vermont. Each farm has locally sourced treats for riders to try. At the end we have a festival market with a locally catered meal for riders, and a festival market featuring local artisans from all over Vermont.

ACORN's Tour de Farms is one of Vermont’s oldest cycling farm tours and follows the pastoral landscape of the Champlain Valley.
This year's Tour has two routes: its flagship 30-mile route and a brand new, family-friendly 14-mile route. Over 25 local farms, food businesses and restaurants will be participating. Sample everything from organic fruit smoothies to grass-fed beef to Vermont's famous cheddar cheese!
A Farm Bus is available for those who choose not to ride a bike and a concierge Farm Van will deliver purchased farm products to the Bristol Rec Field so riders don't need to carry extra weight with them. Share in the experience of sampling delicious, farm fresh food while enjoying the beauty of the landscape from the comfort of the bus.
Stay for the Tour de Farms After Party; we'll have live music from The Doughboys, a food truck, free Farmhouse ice cream for all riders, and drinks for sale by Shacksbury Cider, Hogback Mountain Brewery and Savouré Soda.
