Sylvester Manor Educational Farm
A Community Center and Farmstand Circa 1652
A piece of Shelter Island history, this once slaveholding plantation kept in the same family for 11 generations, is now reinvented as a non-profit community center, 225 acre educational organic farm, event space and farm stand on the national register of historic places. The center offers tours of the farm and manor house, programs for budding young farmers, concerts and dining events featuring local artists and purveyors. Don't miss the farm stand open Wed-Sun starting on July 1.
