The Vermont Foodways Digital Initiative explores the culture and tradition of food in Vermont - from farm to fork - through multimedia.

Migration, Past and Present looks at the food traditions, customs and stories, not only of the earliest settlers in Vermont, but also of more recent refugees and transplants. Although there are continuities in the stories of Vermonters relationship to food, the many movements of people into and out of the state have also created an imprint of how we farm, cook, eat and celebrate.

Techniques of the Working Landscape looks at how Vermonters use the land for nourishment and livelihood, including agrarian traditions and hunting and foraging practices. Cooking, canning and gardening techniques are also explored.
