Vermont- Shelburne Farms

The end of summer was filled lots of great trips with family and friends; one being a fabulous long weekend in Vermont.  We hit all the usual spots...Prohibition Pig, Hen of the Wood, Cabot Cheese & Hill Farmstead, along with some new stops at Lost Nation Brewing, the Farmhouse Tap Room and a beautiful Sunday supper at Shelburne Farms.

This enormous Inn was nestled among the rolling green hills of a working farm that produces all kinds of dairy, fruits, vegetables and meat. Unfortunately we didn't have time to take a tour of the grounds but we got a taste of their incredible farming techniques with a meal on the Inn patio.

The Sunday Supper was a delicious 4 course prixe fixe that began with a mix of greens from their Market Garden dressed with tomato basil, pickled red onions, and candied hazelnuts.

There was a choice of four different entrees that evening including a crisp Misty Knoll Fried Chicken with homemade coleslaw and maple honey...  

... and an enormous chunk of Shelburne Farms Beef drizzled in a thick red wine au jus.

Then we nibbled on some cheese from their dairy, that night a soft, tangy three year Cheddar with crostini.

And to finish a sour Lemon Meringue Tart with macerated blueberries and berry coulis. 

We watched the sun set over Lake Champlain while sipping on Mojitos with muddled blueberries and fresh mint.  It was the perfect way to cap off a glorious Vermont weekend.
