Stone Barns Center is a non-profit farm and education center, but is better known as a partner with the world-renowned restaurant Blue Hill. I will not be able to dine at this high caliber restaurant for…oh…awhile (I predict), but to get a taste of what farm-to-table food taste like, you can always get your lunch at the Blue Hill Cafe inside the center.
Being in denial that summer is over (the ‘symbol’ of Labor Day weekend, the last ‘holiday’ before the first day of school), I wanted one final summery outing to celebrate my favorite season. It was a long drive upstate, but well worth it. I encountered friendly farm animals (sheep, pigs, turkeys oh my!), saw vegetable fields, ate delicious (albeit pricey) organic foods, and also got lost as we wandered around without a trusty map.
To be honest, my Sunday started out really moody; luckily, the scenic greenery and nature bounties brought back the sunshine in me. That’s the magic of the mother earth.
