Fall 2021 Programs

A New Day at Stone Barns

Reserve Experiences & Parking Passes

It’s a new day at Stone Barns Center! If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the past year and a half, it’s that a sustainable food system requires a strong food culture to support it. Our Fall programming doubles down on exactly that: At every turn, you will taste the work of our farmers and artisans in collaboration with Blue Hill’s chefs, bakers, fermenters and butchers.

We’re also pulling back the curtain of Stone Barns and Blue Hill’s process—offering a look at the research and development that goes into our shared vision for the future of food, in addition to the finished dish:

  • Behind-the-scenes tours and tastings in our Innovation Labs
  • Farm tours of the greenhouse and growing spaces led by Stone Barns farmers and Blue Hill cooks
  • In-person and virtual cooking classes and butchery demonstrations

On-site parking and all experiences except breakfast require reservations.

Community Education Wednesdays 
Every Wednesday, Stone Barns Center and Blue Hill Restaurant bring the entire campus—farmers, cooks, educators, waiters, porters, foragers, mechanics and artisans—together in the field, kitchen and classroom: learning from each other and from visiting farmers, chefs and researchers. Community groups, students, farmer trainees and wellness professionals also join us, sharing diverse perspectives and helping Stone Barns Center imagine a healthier and more equitable food culture. Stay tuned for updates and learnings from these collaborative sessions!
