The orchard and farm are immense. It has goats, llamas, sheep, and a burro. Our two year old grandson enjoyed the combine harvester playground with slides, tractor trikes, hand pump rubber duck races, but not the bounce tent. We strolled the grounds and picked and...More

Today I have to say was probably the best apple picking day ever! The macs were huge and delicious! After we were directed where to go, we found trees that everyone could reach easily! We quickly filled our 1/2 bushel bag with 23 pounds of...More

Lovely farm stand with very nice staff. We went to buy apples last week. They were DOUBLE the price of apples at Bolton Farms on Rt. 117. Do not buy your apples at Shelburne Farms.

Visited in September so a couple of weeks before peak crowds. Still was busy but no long lines. Several kid-focused activities; wish they had adult-sized pedal tractors. Did not get the hoped for cider donuts but that was my choice to skip 10-15 minute wait....More

Love Shelburne! It's a great spot for apple picking, cider doughnuts and fun with the kiddos. In the fall they typically have a fire pit going and the smell of the burning wood while sipping apple cider is the best.
