Shelburne has long been known for having farms that were good for grazing animals and growing apples due to the climate, soils, and elevation that we have here. During the late 1800’s Shelburne was the largest producer of dairy products in Franklin County and by the mid 1900’s the town was one of the largest apple producing areas in Massachusetts. The area still grows many old heirloom varieties of apples and we are trying to increase their numbers in our orchard through the use of grafting on to our younger trees. The first generation of our family settled here in 1896 and there have been cattle and apples raised on the farm ever since. Our grand children who are the sixth generation are also raising some sheep and chickens as well as helping with the maple sugaring.
