About

Come see our new, beautiful Farm store / Farm museum / Tasting room! Enjoy the view with a drink of hard cider and snacks. We raise grass-fed beef, produce maple, grow apples, make cider syrup and more. Please check our website or call ahead for hours.

The beef is totally grass-fed with no antibiotics, hormones, grain, or corn. The cattle live a leisurely life grazing in the pastures and fields and eating the hay we bale for them in the winter.

WE NOW SELL STANDING BULL HARD CIDER USING OUR OWN APPLES! Semi-Dry, Dry & Sweet Options for every palate!

Shelburne, MA has long history of farms that were known for grazing animals and growing apples due our climate, soils, and elevation. 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 grown on the farm ever since.

Our grand children who are the sixth generation are also raising sheep and chickens as well as helping with the maple sugaring. Wheel-View Farm now maintains an apple orchard using Integrated Pest Management which relies on natural predators and a minimum amount of spraying with the least toxic chemicals available. Our apples ripen from mid-August thru late-October. The raw cider is a blend of tree-ripened old and new apple varieties creating a flavor for everyone to enjoy and can be made into hard cider or vinegar. The diverse variety of apples used in our cider blends gives our hard cider a combination of aromatics, tannins, acidity and an adequate amount of natural sugars for good fermentation. We try to have raw cider available in the store through November and several varieties of dry, semi-dry, and sweet hard cider year round. Hard Cider from our newly licensed Farmer Winery — now available for sale!
