We loved our visit to Shelburne farms! We enjoyed seeing the animals with the kids and learning how they make cheese. Our only regret is that we didn't leave ourselves enough time! Plan on spending at least a half day there!

A must see if you have kids and love farm animals. Kids can touch the animals. They can even milk the cow. You could also buy lunch there and have a small picnic while chiken are free running around you! kinda cool! Really nice biews!

It was $8 per adult and $5 per child. We spent the majority of the time at the Children's Farmyard, where we got to milk a cow. They also had an assortment of animals, such as rabbits, goats, hens and sheep. My daughter had fun playing in the barn. We walked through a nice trail to the farmyard and on the way back to the entrance we rode in the wagon. Also viewed the cheesemaking process. We ate lunch there--the grilled cheese and chocolate milk were great and so fresh as they use the milk from the cows. It's a beautiful place...wish we had had more time to stroll around.

An admission required for the farm. It gave you some educational programs, facilities and walking trails access. I just went to the gift shop to check things out. The store had the nice gifts with reasonable price. Eg. Small Recycled Glass Dish $6.99, somewhere it was selling for $9.99.

We booked Sunday breakfast and we were not disappointed...Farm fresh and delicious. Then walked around the 400+ acres of land...views of the lake are magnificent....stop by the barn to milk the cows and goats....buy the bread and cheese at their shops..we really had a great day so much to do
