A nonprofit environmental education center and national historic landmark.
This place was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Robert Roberson in 1886 as a model large scale agricultural estate. The placement of buildings, roads, and other places of interest highlight the natural beauty embodied in the green mountains and Lake Champlain. Shelburne Farms is a testament to the often over looked but superb beauty of the northeast. It embodies the values and ethics of the northeast farmer and shows a deep respect for land that can only be obtained by working with the soil.
What Makes Shelburne Farms a Great Place?

Shelburne Farms makes a wonderful first, second, third, etc. impression. It features a wide variety of people from all walks of life. It is well maintained and safe.
