Stone Barns Center 

Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in Pocantico Hills, New York is one of my favorite places on earth. To start, it's home to the world renowned fine dining restaurant, Blue Hill at Stone Barns. (Spend a special occasion here if you haven’t yet - it is so worth the splurge! And if you do visit, be sure to come early enough to walk around the farm before dinner.)

Stone Barns is an absolute dream for anyone who appreciates food, farming, nature, animals….or just beauty in general. Beginning weekends in April, Stone Barns offers all kinds of seasonal, interactive activities and tours on the farm each Saturday and Sunday. The farm is open from 10am-5pm and visitors can explore independently, or join any of the educator-led activities happening throughout the day. As weekend tickets do sell out, purchase up to 4 weeks in advance on Stone Barn’s website.
