Sylvester Manor Educational Farm
Sylvester Manor was once a Native American hunting and fishing ground on Shelter Island between the north and south forks of Eastern Long Island. Since 1652, it has been home to eleven generations of its European settler family. Over the years, the Manor has evolved from a plantation to an Enlightenment-era farm, and then to a pioneering food industrialist’s estate. Today, the Manor operates as an organic educational farm responsive to and supported by neighbors and friends worldwide.
Its mission is to cultivate, preserve, and share these lands, buildings, and stories - inviting new thought on the importance of food and culture holds in daily lives. The Manor’s evolution reflects a remarkable and intact history of America’s rich history, economies and landscapes.
