“Encompassing 200 acres in Dutchess County, NY, Sprout Creek Farm is really three different entities, distinct yet dynamically entertwined. It is a working farm, raising free-ranging cows, sheep, goats, wild turkeys, guinea fowl, chickens, and pigs.
It is a market, selling our internationally award-winning cheeses and farm-produced meats, as well as local Hudson Valley milk, eggs, vegetables, crafts, and gifts. And it is an educational center, offering day, weekend, and summer programs that help connect young people to the land, the seasons, and the plants and animals that co-exist here in harmonious rhythm.”
“Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture is a farm, a kitchen, a classroom–an exhibit, a laboratory, a campus. The mission of this unique, nonprofit, member-driven collaboration is to celebrate, teach and advance community-based food production and enjoyment, from farm to classroom to table.
Where does our food really come from?
How does what we choose to eat affect our health, the health of the land, the community and the environment?
What food systems are we supporting with what we choose to buy?
Helping people make these farm-to-table connections is what the Center is all about.
Stone Barns Center is within a 45-minute drive for the nearly 19 million residents of the New York metropolitan area. The Center’s farm, education center and its partner, Blue Hill at Stone Barns restaurant, work hand-in-hand to provide an unforgettable way to think about food issues, get questions answered, get involved personally or even get dirty (optional but fun).”
