    About Harvest Festival. Harvest Festival is the primary, yearly fundraising event for VFFC. Harvest Festival is not only a celebration of achievement and thanks to our farmer and vendor partners and thousands of volunteers who have turned a days-gone-by industrial park into a vibrant community-economic engine, it is the primary way VFFC continues to sustain and grow our exemplary work involving local produce and healthy living and maximize our impact on Rutland’s regional economy and the beneficiaries whom we serve.

    VFFC sincerely and graciously thanks you for your support!
