Create an itinerary including Shelburne Farms
Nestled on the shores of Lake Champlain, Shelburne Farms remains a great place to spend some quality family time in the countryside, petting goats and rabbits, watching cheddar cheese being made, and learning about sustainable living. This nonprofit organization is set on a historic working farm that dates back to 1886, and represents an excellent example of a Gilded Age "ornamental farm." Enjoy more than 16 km (10 mi) of walking trails, take the tour of lush garden followed by afternoon tea and cookies, or ride on an open-air truck-pulled wagon through the historic landscape. Children will love the opportunity to collect eggs or milk cows by hand. Make Shelburne Farms a centerpiece of your Shelburne vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Shelburne road trip app.

  • This is a must see working farm. However, the Inn and some of the buildings are not open due to Covid. One can see the cheese making, visit the bakery, farm animals and walk the 10 miles of trails.....  more

  • History, outdoor trails, educational, beautiful location/grounds with lake views from upper trails. This place holds dear to my heart as I spent much time visiting here with children. If you are local, a membership is a terrific choice.
  • It's a big, beautiful place. Cars are not allowed beyond the parking lot for the shop. We simply parked the car there and walked the trail all the way to the lake. The view along the trail was beautiful! So was the public garden next to a mansion on a hill with the lake view.
