Shelburne Farms Holiday Catalog 2017


Welcome to Shelburne Farms The story of our cheddar and maple syrup is about love of place and community. When you purchase our products, you help to conserve and share Vermont’s beautiful and productive working landscape, create an inspiring campus that brings the big ideas of sustainability to life, and support a network of educators for sustainability who are connecting learning to place around the world. We hope you’ll come stay and enjoy the Farm and our products throughout the year. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to help with your gift list. We are deeply grateful for your support!

From Sun to Cheese

Pastures with purpose The cheddar you enjoy from us reflects the health of our soils, pastures, and cows. And our farming practices make the lessons we share about sustainability more real and compelling. We’re proud to operate a Certified Humane dairy where our Brown Swiss cows thrive on pastures and hayfields, now supplemented with only non-GMO verified grain.
