Thank you for the tastiest lamb I've ever had! The lamb entree on 8/6/14 was delicious and had just the right combination of textures between meat and veg. Great sausage, too. Kudos!
A suggestion---season the meat with just a touch more salt before you send it out. Americans are salt-phobic in a way most other countries aren't, I know. But I suspect you're aiming for "perfectly seasoned in the kitchen so the diner needn't add anything." That's my goal, anyway, when I entertain.
But there just wasn't enough salt on it, and shaking on big grains at the table is not the same thing. Besides, there are no salt shakers on the tables. Just a touch more would really make the lamb sing.
Thanks again for a wonderful meal.
A huge thanks to Shelburne Farms for helping us make the Outreach for Earth Stewardship event possible. Much of the magic that day was the beauty and support we received from the Shelburne Farms location/staff.
My husband and I spent our honeymoon at The Inn 25 years ago August, we spent many years returning for each anniversary, and this past year returned again to celebrate our 25th Anniversary, we absolutely love Shelburne and all it represents, over the years of vacationing we have taken our kids to the farm barn to play and learn about farming and farm animals, they love to hold chickens, milk goats, see the cheese making and all of the many things that happen at the farm barn. We always love to come here and take a trip back in time to the simpler days and reflect on life and enjoy the beauty of the lake, and the views of the Adirondack mountains of NY state, and then the Green Mountains in Vermont.

We are Visiting Again!
Breathtaking views! Utterly calm and serene. The animals at the farm are so clean, happy and well looked after. The Farm Cart has some great choices, tried their Pesto Veggie sandwich - delicious! Loved the quaint little bakery. The cheese making was interesting, a nice worker came out to explain how each batch is tested for aging, and explained that if numbers are off, it is aged for 6 months, or smoked. The weather. Oh! The weather was perfecto blended with happiness!!
We are visiting again :-)
A Great Family Program!
We came for the Garden Tea Party recently and it was amazing. The kids had a blast picking their own mint and lavender and making their own tea bags. And the tea party on the terrace was just wonderful, the program leaders were great with the kids and helped them learn a lot. Cannot wait till this comes around again we will definitely be signing up again :)

A Great Family Visit
My son, daughter and I visited your farm for the first time today. I was blown away by the landscape, every detail from the names of each animal, to the "learning" tree inside, to the friendly chickens and the wide epic expanse of land, to the delicious freshly created farm truck cuisine, amazingly crafted cheese and bread "to go", not to mention the very friendly staff. We have many farms where we live in Pennsylvania but none that have the educational foundation and culture of "Cultivating Change". We will visit again on our next trip to Vermont. Thank you! I highly suggest Shelburne Farms for any family traveling to this region.
Bats in the Barn Family Program
Last year our family came to the Bats in the Barn program and it was one of the highlights of our summer. The slide show was informative and engaging - Barry did an amazing job providing so much information in a fun and totally kid-friendly way. We can't wait to come again this summer!
I had an absolutely amazing stay at Shelburne. There was no detail overlooked--perfect tour (including a chance to meet the cheesemaker--a rock star in my book.) The food is amazing, the rooms beautiful, the setting serene. If you are looking to disconnect from the hustle and bustle and reconnect with what or who is important to you this is the perfect place. Friendly staff all around--no stuffed shirts here.
Lovely, amazing and well worth it.
