When Bread and Butter Farm in Shelburne started, its founders were planning to grow some vegetables, produce dairy products and start a bakery. In the seven years since Bread and Butter Farm was started, they've expanded from just farming to also running a farm store, housing a coffee shop and hosting music classes and summer camps for kids.
"It's amazing where they've come!" said Melissa Pasanen, a contributor to the Savovore Section of the Burlington Free Press. "There's so much going on there. Many folks in the area may know them mostly for their burger nights in the summer where you can get beef from their own farm and salads that are made with vegetables they grow there."
