Fall 2021 Programs

A New Day at Stone Barns


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. Starting in October we’re going to double down on exactly that.

Our Fall programming offers something new: At every turn, you will taste the work of our farmers through the work of Blue Hill’s chefs, bakers, fermenters, butchers and craftspeople.

We’ll also pull back the curtain of Stone Barns and Blue Hill in process—offering a look at the research and development going into our shared vision for the future of food, rather than just the finished dish:

  • Behind-the-scenes culinary research tours and tastings
  • 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

Our farm-centered Cafeteria is open to the public for coffee and light breakfast (fresh breads, yogurt, granola, local fruits) from 10 am – 12 pm, Thursday-Sunday.

Wednesday is Internal Learning Day
Every Wednesday, Stone Barns Center and Blue Hill will 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 will 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—coming soon!
