FARM FRESH

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI was watching Top Chef last week where they featured Blue Hill at Stone Barnes. I knew that it was going to be in the 50’s on Sunday – so why not go visit this farm! It is about 40 minutes away from NYC and there is a wonderful cafe there where you get yummy scones, cookies, coffee and other savory things. The Farm is about 80 acres – we walked around and saw many cute animals. Daisy the cow, Roger the sheep dog, Porky the pig, Rocky the rooster. The Farm reminded me of a book that I read in school called My Family and other Animals by Gerald Durrell. I recommend making a reservation at the restaurant – we did and plan on going back to eat the fresh organic farm food. If the cafe is any indication the restaurant is going to be simply divine.

Taking pictures was a little difficult – nothing was too picturesque everything still had snow and the trees were bare. I know a photographer should be able to find pictures anywhere – but it was very difficult to be inspired. I am looking forward to another trip to the farm when it is lush and green.

I love this place. What a great idea to get out of the city. They also have a restaurant in New York, if you can't ever make it up to the farm.

I like your picture of the farm in the snow...it's got a picture postcard look to it. I also somehow like the one with the cow...it looks so peacefully bovine.

Thanks y'all for the comments ! :) That cow was so BIG - we were quite amazed. They were really fattening it up!
