Why I Support
"Shelburne Farms is so impressive in how it sticks to mission and serves the community. We're grateful the Farm is open during the pandemic—it's critical to mental health to have access to outside beauty. My family shops at the Farm Store because every dollar is spent frugally and goes to better our great state and the Farm's mission."
