Shelburne Farms simply doesn’t exist without people like you. We are deeply grateful for the support of our donors and Farm community and are excited to share that we met our year-end fundraising goals! In 2019, more than 4,200 friends supported the Farm—a wonderful increase over last year. Charitable support makes Shelburne Farms a beautiful place of learning, growth, and inspiration, and a catalyst for exploring how education can shape a sustainable future. We hope you enjoy this glimpse of winter at the Farm Barn along with our thanks. Video by Art Bell.
