One of our favorite ways to spend the weekend is going for a drive. This Sunday we visited some family upstate and made our way to Stone Barn near Tarrytown. Originally a working dairy farm for the Rockefeller Estate in the 1930's (so they could have fresh milk at all times), Stone Barn Center for Food and Agriculture opened in Spring 2004 to help build awareness about everyday food choices, increase awareness of seasonal, sustainable food and train farmers in restorative techniques. Stone Barn is surrounded by 80 acres of idyllic green pastures filled with lambs, cows, chickens and geese, in addition to incredible gardens and stunning true-to-name stone buildings. You can check out the cafe for seasonal, fresh-from-the-garden treats, take a self-guided tour through the grounds, take a class (this one and this one could be great for families) or sit down at Blue Hill at Stone Barn, an amazing farm-to-table restaurant where the menu is ever evolving to what looks best that day. It's the perfect spot for the whole family and a special date-night for foodies.
