Glimpse into winter logging on the Farm as part of our sustainable forestry practices. Do you have a child in your life who loves the forest? Sign up for Forester for a Day, Saturday, February 24! Put on a hard hat, watch a forester fell a tree, work in the wood shop, and learn the importance of trees in our lives.

In 2017, the cheesemaking team turned 1.5 MILLION pounds of Brown Swiss milk into our farmstead cheddar. Here, our newest lead cheesemaker just finished making her first solo batch of cheese - congrats, Andi! 🎉 #brownswiss #rawmilkcheese #vermont #vermontbyvermonters #cheeseplease #vermontmade #shelburnefarms #rootedinvermont
The Woodlands Team has been inspecting sap lines this week, preparing for sugaring season. They find and repair any tubing that's been dragged down by fallen tree limbs, and when they're done (they're almost there!), they'll start up the vacuum pump and inspect all the lines again, listening for air escaping through faults in the tubing, like where a rodent might have nibbled through!
Did you know that owls can't digest the fur and bones of their prey so they have to regurgitate it in a pellet?! Join us this Saturday 10-12 to explore and dissect your very own owl pellet, graciously donated by the owls of @raptorsinvt, and find intact bones of the owl's prey. We'll also make owl masks and meet the live OFES owl ambassadors. Registration required, link in profile.
