The harvest continues! In a typical year, the organic produce from our Market Garden would be used in our seasonal Inn restaurant, our Farm Cart, and catering our onsite professional learning workshops for educators. This year, it's being sold through our Farm Store and incorporated into delicious pre-packaged meals for curbside pickup for our local community to enjoy.

A New Resource for Educators
Take a look at this exciting new resource from PEER Associates and Shelburne Farms that supports educators in doing more place-based education, a powerful answer to COVID-19.
Why We Give
"As members of Shelburne Farms, we appreciate the treasure it is to our community. The grounds have been a blessing to us as they have provided a place for our teenage daughters to safely meet their friends and socially distance."
