Michael Minchak
Farm-based Educator
[email protected]

Michael is a farm-based educator who finds great joy in helping visitors forge connections with Shelburne Farms through their experiences in the farmyard gardens. He spent over 30 years as an elementary educator and is a master gardener and certified horticulturist. In the farmyard gardens, he’s able to unite his teaching skills with his plant knowledge, guiding visitors through the gardens so they can understand how their food is grown and perhaps even plant a garden of their own. After the season ends, Michael can be found participating in educational programs at Shelburne Farms or working in the cheese processing operation.
