I have heard from three different parents who attended that it was the most enjoyable experience they've ever had on a field trip. I concur. What I value so much about our experiences at the Farms is that you tailor programs to meet specific curricular goals. You are unique in that way and really should serve as a model.
Your Adventures Program
Thank you so much for the time you spent with our son. He hasn't stopped talking about his Adventure Program and how much he will miss it. You run a remarkable program and we hope to be able to join you again in the fall.
The Children's Farmyard
Had a fabulous afternoon at Shelburne Farms. Daughter got to milk a real live cow, pet chickens and look for eggs in the coop, see baby pigs, donkey, baby cows, sheep, goats and rabbits. IT was also tractor day so she could sit on tractors and other machines. The farm grounds are really like a huge estate and very beautiful. There are trails you can walk and we saw people running there too. It was an extremely pleasant and beautiful afternoon for all of us.

A Visit to the Farm & Inn
The property stresses sustainability, respect for nature and historic preservation. If you can't find peace, tranquility and relaxation here, then you won't find it anywhere. Worth the visit no matter how you measure it. Shelburne Inn and the Shelburne Farms property are jewels to be experienced and treasured.

A Stay at the Inn
If you are looking to get away from it all and step back in time this is the place to go - filled with antiques and beautiful paintings it is a history lesson in its self. The food is to die for in the Inn's restaurant all grown on site and just nothing short of amazing. We stayed in the White Room and again beautiful - no TV's, A/C or Heat so pick your timing the inn is only open from May - October Enjoy!!
