Our Visit to Shelburne Farms (Finally!)

Here we are, a week after we visited Shelburne Farms, and I am finally getting around to posting about this fabulous visit!  We had heard for a good few years about how amazing this place was and now that we have been there we can see why! It was phenomenal, and yes, if we lived in Vermont we'd be there all the time!
With map in hand we embarked on our journey down the gravel path to the farm barn.
Which was a breathtaking sight!
We helped this sweet chicken get back in the pen with the rest of her sisters.
A coop you can go in?!  Can this place be any more fabulous?!

Emma named this chicken Vanessa.
We got to experience what it's like to be in a pen.
And we learned about making cheese.  It's quite a process!
Had it not been like 40 degrees out we would have had lunch here.  We decided instead to grab a snack and stop by The Farmer's Diner on our way home. 
What a magical place! We just wish it had not been super cold and grey out.  But then again, maybe it was good that it was grey and cold. Had it been a perfect autumn day we never would have left (and as it was we were there for three hours)!  It was totally up our alley and is a place that we will surely return to again!  


  1. Oh my goodness - that looks wonderful! I think a road trip to Vermont might be in order for us next autumn…my littlest will be big enough to enjoy it then, I think. xo

  2. ....sigh. Am I too old for field trips? Because I'd really like to go! What an adorable place!

  3. Looks like a great farm, and so very educational too. I love that they have a place for you to return eggs to if you find them. :) What sweet and friendly farm animals!
