We are pleased to present Summer Nights at Stone Barns, a lecture series featuring contributors from our newly released book Letters to a Young Farmer. Join us this summer to hear three change makers discuss the critical path ahead for achieving a healthy and sustainable food system for all. And new this year, come early to enjoy evening tours and hands-on farm activities. Sandwiches and salads from Blue Hill Café and Grain Bar and wine by the glass will be available for purchase. Tickets are just $20!
Thank you to all who attended Summer Nights at Stone Barns this year. Stay tuned for future events!
