Wordful Wednesday — Stone Barns Without Michelle Obama

by Dagmar Bleasdale on November 10, 2010

Michelle Obama just visited Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, N.Y., a few weeks ago — and we finally also went to check it out.

Visiting Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture has been on my Bucket List. Don and I are very interested in healthy and sustainable food production, and Stone Barns is only 25 minutes away from us, so off we went last Saturday and had a wonderful time at this beautiful, inspiring, educational non-profit farm and education center.

Their Blue Hill restaurant is so exclusive that it takes two months to get a reservation, but we enjoyed the Blue Hill Cafe and the lovely gift store.

What a fabulous place! I love the photos Dagmar, especially the one with L by the stone water trough. Thanks for stopping by, linking up and mentioning my linky in your post. I’m sorry it took me forever to stop by. It’s been a crazy day.

Great picture! Looks like a neat place to explore.

The picture of your son with the little red cloth box with the mice puppets made me do a double take- I bought this for my son when he was 3- he’s 14 now. We use it as a Christmas ornament/ keepsake. Can’t believe I actually saw a picture of it!

That place looks like a lot of fun! I imagine you learned a lot!!


Rhen @Yes, they are all mine November 10, 2010 at 3:31 PM

Wow! That is definitely the kind of place our family would love to visit and learn from. Homesteading and sustainable living just speak to our families’ hearts! :)

That looks like a fantastic day. What a great spot :) Happy WW!
