This trip series serves to engage Middlebury students with Vermont-based ventures and organizations.

In the past few years we have organized a series of field trips to local industry groups on a monthly basis. Destinations have included the following:

  • Aquavitae
  • Burlington Electric
  • Seventh Generation
  • Woodchuck
  • Vermont Coffee Co.
  • Seedsheet
  • Shacksbury Cider
  • Stonecutter Spirits 

In the 2019-2020 academic year we are planning trips in collaboration with the Middlebury Sustainability office to places such as Lathrop Forest Products and Golden Well Farm and Apiaries.

Stay tuned for the next trip dates and applications. Reach out to Heather Lovejoy (, Director of the Innovation Hub if you have any questions or if you would like to suggest any trips.
