When you enjoy Shelburne Farms cheddar, maple syrup, and other Vermont farm products, you are helping to make a simple idea a reality. The idea is this: that transformational learning, grounded in place and community, is sowing the seeds for growing a healthy and just world.

Our Campus for Learning
As the days get shorter and winter fast approaches, we’re looking back on three ways learners dug in on the farm this fall. This edition features The John Dewey Society, Burlington High School Horizons Program, and our family programs with Outreach for Earth Stewardship.
Ensuring our Campus' Future with Lightning Protection 
Improved lightning protection, installed this summer and fall, will protect historic buildings essential to our educational campus, including the Farm Barn, Coach Barn, and Inn.
Beyond-the-Pumpkin Pie
The name 'pumpkin' pie can be a little misleading. Pumpkin is really just a cuter word for any thick-skinned winter squash, and lots of chefs will use other varieties of squash aside from the common pie pumpkin. Try Inn Pastry Chef Veronica Bartolacci's version of this autumnal treat.
Why We Give
"The Children's Farmyard and Adventures Program have given our children unique opportunities to learn in a fun, hands-on way. Through our membership, we are supporting Shelburne Farms' commitment to education and fostering strong connections to the natural world."

What We're Following

Senator Leahy promotes the Vermont Farm to School & Early Childhood Network's #ThisFarmFeedsVTKids campaign. We support this work through Vermont FEED, our partnership program with NOFA-VT. Via Addison County Independent.
The Counter looks into Vermont's statewide legislation that led to a big rise in food donation and composting. But separating food from its packaging continues to cause headaches.
We collaborated with The Trust for Public Land to create "Nature Near Schools", an interactive map illustrating which K-12 schools in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont benefit from accessible, conserved open space.
Shelburne Farms is a nonprofit education organization inspiring and cultivating learning for a sustainable future. Based on Abenaki land along the shores of Lake Champlain, our campus is a 1,400-acre working farm, forest, and National Historic Landmark.
