Cookie’s Big Adventures: Stone Barns Center

For a walk you and your dog will never forget, visit the Stone Barns Center in Pocantico Hills, NY.

The Stone Barns Center is a non-profit farm and education center, with a mission of increasing awareness of healthy, seasonal, and sustainable food, educating children about sources of healthy food, and training farmers. There are acres of fields where vegetables and flowers grow and pastures full of animals including chickens, ducks, geese, pigs, piglets, cows, calfs, and burrows.  Beehives buzz with activity, the Terrace Garden is still full of lovely flowers as of today’s date, and the Greenhouse is producing all sorts of yummy veggies too.  In the middle of all these activities, in a lovely stone chateau & barn, are the Farm Store, the Blue Hill Cafe, and The Farm Market, open on weekends.  The well known restaurant, Blue Hill at Stone Barns, is on site as well.  Throughout the year the Stone Barns Center offers amazing opportunities to learn about egg collecting, gardening, cooking and farming.  There are tours of the facility and children’s programs every weekend, and Farm Camp is offered throughout the year.  

But best of all from Cookie’s point of view, dogs are welcome to come and visit and walk through the center’s rolling hills and idyllic paths.  Breathing in the freshest of air, and enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of the livestock and crops – what could be better for a dog?  And also for you?  With the Autumn leaves coming in, it’s a wonderful time to come visit and spend the afternoon.

The Stone Barns Center is open Wednesdays thru Sundays. For more information, visit http://www.stonebarnscenter.org.  Cookie plans to be a frequent visitor this Fall..hope to see you and your dog there too!

Warm & Fuzzys, Diana
