On Sunday, Retreat Farm hosted the first Community Days to celebrate the locals and regular visitors who call the Farm home. One highlight of the event was the animal meet-and-greet. Animal Care Manager, Emma Recchi, provided a special opportunity for visitors to get up close and personal with Carlos the Ox, Sassy the donkey, and the farm’s herd of goats, including Pip, Trouble, Sundae, Cinnamon, and Noon and Meridien visiting from Big Picture Farm.

From Community Days to the Collective Impact Program, which donates 20% of the Food Truck Roundup proceeds to ten local nonprofits, Retreat Farm is focused on giving back this year.

“The farm is a platform for bringing different communities together. This place means so many different things to people. Community Days is a way to celebrate everyone who has a special relationship with the Farm,” shared Community Outreach Manager, Jen Zakrzewski.

With free lemonade, lawn games, Far Out giant bubbles, and a trail scavenger hunt, over 300 people showed up at the Farm to enjoy the festivities.

Thanks to support from M&T Bank, Retreat Farm will host another Community Day on Sunday, August 27th, from noon to 4pm.

“M&T Bank is pleased to support Retreat Farm,” said Kathy Schirling, Vice President, Divisional Community Involvement Manager. “Retreat Farm is an asset in our community, providing a place for our community to gather, enjoy each other’s company, and most importantly, a place to learn to live with and love the land that is so beautiful in Vermont.”
