Explore the Children's Farmyard at the Majestic Barn of Shelburne Farms

The 1,400 landscaped acres of Shelburne Farms  located on the Shelburne Pennisula in the Champlain Valley of western Vermont offer  a scenic backdrop for families to explore the Children's Farmyard.

Hop on the wagon and ride from the Welcome Center, through the lane lined with giant poplars or take the 3/4 mile walking trail through woodlands and meadows to the majestic 19th Century Farm Barn.  The driver gives a brief history lesson when you arrive.   You can ride the wagon back again or enjoy the walking trail, weather permitting and turn around just before you enter the forest for another fabulous view of the Farm Barn.

The wagon ride is included with general admission.  Guided tours of the property are also available.

Shelburne Farms was turned into a non-profit organization in 1972 by the descendents of William Seward and Lila Vanderbilt Webb.  The Webbs established the farm as a model agricultural estate in the late 19th century.

Interesting enough, when the property was purchased it was all fields.  30,000 trees were planted on the property as part of the planned landscape by the famed designer of Central Park in New York City.

The south wing of the Farm Barn houses the Children's Farmyard.  Here children can visit the farm animals in the barn including sheep, chickens, a calf and rabbits, to name a few.  Brown Swiss Cows used in the dairy operation on the farm provide children with an opportunity to try their hand at milking.  

Children are encouraged to visit the enclosed chicken pen, collect some eggs and weigh them on the antique egg scale.  The chickens are accustomed to children in the enclosure.

Activities throughout the Children's Farmyard delight and educate visitors about the animals in the farmyard.

Cheesemaking is demonstrated in the center section of the Farm Barn.  Over 125 Brown Swiss Cows are milked twice a day to produce the Shelburne Farm's award-winning cheddar cheese.  Children can step up to the window and watch as workers turn the milk into curds and whey.  The process continues with the whey drained into underground tanks for use as fertilizer.  

The curds are then packed and pressed with the cheese eventually being aged for 6 months to 3 years.

Visitors can sample various aged cheeses and purchase farm products at the cheesemaking facility.

The Children's Farmyard and Cheesemaking are open from Mid May to Mid October, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

A visit to the Welcome Center, which is open year round offers products produced on the farm, including cheddar cheese, Vermont maple syrup and children's books.  A slide presentation detailing the history of the farm is shown to educate and entertain visitors.

Admission and tour tickets are sold here from Mid May to Mid October.

The Shelburne Farms Children's Farmyard offers families an educational look at farm animals in a majestic setting.
