I visited Shelburne Farms with some friends and had a pleasant time. We took the tractor ride to the farm and saw lots of animals! The baby cows and pigs were adorable and the historic farm is breathtaking. A true Vermont gem!

We were fortunate to have stayed in the farmhouse with another family we were traveling with. The farm is like a castle for animals! A beautiful memory. I can't wait to return some day.

This place is great for day hikes- there are several trails that you can taking of varying difficulty, and the payoff is a beautiful view of Lake Champlain. There is also a working farm which is very entertaining if you are traveling with young kids.

This farm is one of the best places in Vermont to visit. They give you a free ride around the beautiful, huge green farm. They have educational activities like how to milk a cow etc and let you do hands-on experiences. Their restaurant is great, food is delicious and organic. .It was a nice relaxing day for me

The farm hosts educational activities that help children (and adults) understand how a working farm operates. The employees are passionate about being part of a sustainable farm. We enjoyed the walks that you can take on the farm as well as the... More

I value my annual membership tremendously and enjoy the walking trails, the lunch cart in the Farm Barn courtyard during "the season" for the delicious lunches, the cheddar cheese that is on sale at the welcome center, and the tremendous...
