    I've been a follower of Stone Barns Center for sometime and this was my third time visiting. I loved hearing about the incredible agricultural and culinary system they have set up. I look forward to every opportunity to be outside and learn about the work organizations are doing to maintain sustainable ecosystems.

    The grounds are vast and beautiful. The animals must have been out grazing. We only saw sheep and chickens.

    I've been going 2-3x a week this summer because I love it so much. It's beautiful, peaceful, soulful, everything good. They are committed to taking care of the planet. The grounds are incredible. The animals are so well cared for. The food from the cafe is amazing. I go for a hike, a cup of tea and a bite and a visit with the animals. No better way to relax.

How To Get There

Take MetroNorth Railroad to Tarrytown and then a taxi.
