Let’s face it.
Any trip you take in Vermont can be life changing. With endless views and outdoor adventures as well as museums, shopping and some of the best farmers markets you’ll ever find, there is no shortage of adventures. Shelburne Farms is one of our favorite places to visit that is fun for all in a beautiful setting, educational activities, delicious foods and all around good family fun.

Located on a 1,400 acre working farm, Shelburne Farms is a nonprofit organization which educates people for a sustainable future.
Along with the educational opportunities, they also run a grass-based dairy and cheese-making facility, maple sugaring and lumber operations, an organic market garden, and a seasonal inn to help support their education work.
