Sun to Cheese Tour

Adult Programs
Brown Swiss cows grazing on green pastures at Shelburne Farms.

Where does the story begin with our delicious farmstead cheddar cheese? Come join us on a behind-the-scenes tour to discover the art and science of cheesemaking. Watch the cheesemakers in our Farm Barn cheesemaking facility turn our raw milk into cheddar cheese. At a private cheese tasting, taste the flavors of the farm in a guided sampling of our cheddar. Then, visit the dairy, meet the cows that make the milk, and find out how we care for our landscape, pastures, and Brown Swiss herd. Comfortable clothes and shoes you don't mind getting a little dirty are advised.

This tour will meet at the Farm Store & Welcome Center. You'll be transported around our campus in a transit van or open air tour wagon (weather dependent) both involving a fews steps up to board the vehicle. Accommodations available.

This program is designed for adults. If you are visiting with children, we recommend participating in the hands-on activities in the Children's Farmyard.
