What the fundraiser supports:

Since 2002, Strolling of the Heifers has been connecting people with healthy local food, encouraging and facilitating innovation and entrepreneurship in the farm/food sector, and supporting the development of stronger local food systems. The annual parade and festival brings thousands of people to Brattleboro to celebrate farms, farmers and local food. COVID-19 has put this event, the organization’s main fundraiser, on hold for the time being. Stroll staff are still at work on the organization’s year-round mission, and focusing on rebuilding and redirecting programs to align with “the new normal.” This fundraiser will help sustain the organization while it evaluates ways to continue its mission around local agriculture and food systems.
