The mission of Stone Barns Center is to create a healthy and sustainable food system that benefits us all. Located 25 miles north of Manhattan, Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture is a 501(c)3 nonprofit institution. We operate an 80-acre four-season farm and work to:


    * Increase public awareness of healthy, seasonal and sustainable food.
    * Train farmers in resilient, restorative farming techniques.
    * Educate children about the sources of their food, and prepare them to steward the land that provides it.


Join us as we celebrate, teach, and advance community-based food production and enjoyment. Explore our fields. Stroll through our pastures. Walk our woodlands, Talk with our farmers. Support our cause. Help us to improve the way America eats.
