A visit to Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, (even in the dead of bone-chilling winter), is a must for foodies, farmers or anyone wishing to escape stressful city life; whether you live in New York or are visiting from far away. Located in Pocantico Hills, 25 miles north of Manhattan, the barn is open year round and easy to get to on Metro North via Tarrytown, followed by a short 10 minute taxi ride. The mission of Stone Barns Center is “to create a healthy and sustainable food system that benefits us all.” The 80 acre barn is a spacious free-flowing wonderland, filled with seasonal animals which include: sheep, pigs, chickens, turkeys and cows. There is a greenhouse, vineyard, hay barn, herb and flower garden, bee hives pastures and vegetable fields. Visitors are all welcome to freely roam the premises or take a guided tour. Stone Barns offers cooking, farm and gardening classes, films, workshops and other special programs. The weekly outdoor “Farm Market” is held May through November and indoors during winter months. Stone Barns is also the home to Dan Barbers Blue Hills (at Stone Barns). The restaurant offers a 5 or 8 course prix fixe meal at dinner. There is no menu; you are served what is locally grown and in season at the time of your visit. They also offer Sunday lunch. For a light snack, Blue Hill Cafe offers sandwiches, salads, coffee and baked items. At the cafe, you can also purchase Blue Hill jams, and other locally produced goods.
