ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. - The Champlain Valley Expo is the place to be this week. The 82nd Annual Farm Show kicked off Tuesday.

This years show features more than 150 agricultural exhibits, showing off everything from the newest machinery to the latest ag products.

The organizer says it's an opportunity for ag professionals to attend seminars and network.

"To have all sorts of different booths in one place, come down visit with a variety of people and really learn something about your industry,"  Jackie Folsom, Farm Show Manager, said. "It's really professional development and a big happy reunion for the people that come."

There really is something for everyone. Animals are on display, inculding minature donkeys and llamas!

Admission is free, but organizers are asking people to bring a canned food item to donate at the door to benefit the Vermont Food Bank.
