Shelburne Farms to reopen as a full farm
The Shelburnes have announced that they will be opening a full-scale farm in Tennessee, the Tennessee Post-Dispatch reports.
They will open their first facility on April 14, 2019, and will grow their first crop in March 2020.
The Shelburys have been involved in organic farming for more than 20 years, according to their website.
“Our goal is to create a farm that will allow us to produce our own food and help create sustainable, long-term sustainability for the entire Shelburnean family,” the Shelbures said in a statement.
“We believe this is a major step forward in the evolution of our family business.”
Shelburne is one of a handful of farms that have been allowed to produce their own food since the passage of the Organic Foods Production Act of 2017, which legalized non-GMO and organic food production.
The Shelburese, who are the largest organic farmers in the world, have been able to grow their own crops for more years than most.
They are the first family to be allowed to grow produce on their own.
The family started selling organic produce in the 1990s.
They have also made a name for themselves by producing the famous Shelburneur cake, which they call “a very delicious, delicious, and nutritious way to celebrate a wedding anniversary,” according to the Shelburnses website.
