Our Market Garden has been busy this summer producing food for our community, and it's all available at our Farm Store. But did you know that our greenhouses and gardens have been an integral part of the Shelburne Farms landscape for over 130 years? Find out more about its history and greenhouses, including what's growing in this 1920 image (hint: you make wine with it!).
Annual Financial Report
Shelburne Farms’ financial viability has always rested on the strength and generosity of its community: people like you who donate, volunteer, visit, stay, enjoy a meal, or purchase our cheddar and maple syrup year after year. With deep gratitude for your encouragement and support, we're pleased to share our new annual financial report.
