Friends Circle

Stone Barns Center is a powerhouse of ideas, demonstration and leadership in resilient, sustainable agriculture. We are on a mission to create a healthy and sustainable food system that benefits us all. 

 Creating a supply of GOOD FOOD, GROWN WELL:
• We train and mentor farmers because we need more farms practicing resilient agriculture.
• We experiment with sustainable farming practices that are suited to a rapidly changing environment.  

Increasing demand for GOOD FOOD, GROWN WELL:
• We educate food citizens who value foods that are in season, occasionally blemished, local and regional, delicious, nutritious, diverse and necessary for farm and ecosystem health.
• We demonstrate farm-driven cuisine in partnership with Blue Hill at Stone Barns.
• We convene change-makers and facilitate high-leverage dialogue to spur action. 

Your donation allows Stone Barns to offer student scholarships, train farmers, experiment with new seeds, breeds and techniques, partner with schools, build better tools, and activate food citizens.
