As a fully computational discipline, Lattice Field Theory has the potential to give results that anyone with sufficient computational resources can reproduce, going from input parameters to published numbers and plots correct to the last byte. After briefly motivating and outlining some of the key steps in making lattice computations reproducible, I will present the results of a survey of all 1,229 submissions to the hep-lat arXiv in 2021 of how explicitly reproducible each is. I will highlight areas where LFT has historically been well ahead of the curve, and areas where there are opportunities to do more. I will conclude by outlining some potential next steps to embracing reproducible open science as a community.
