Stone Barns

Kind of odd to post the first entry of a NYC blog on a destination that is outside of NYC, but that’s where life took me today – outside NYC to the Potcantico Hills and Stone Barns.
Stone Barns is a non-profit, sustainable farm, educating the public about the food we eat. I learned that bees prefer brightly painted hives – they’re easier to find; chickens are very social and love the color red; and pigs, who don’t have sweat glands, prefer the forest where the tall trees and cool earth can provide some relief from the hot summer sun.
The farm livestock consists of Angus cows, sheep, chickens, pigs, and turkeys that are naturally fed and highly sought after for the Thanksgiving feast.
