The Farm is one of my favorite places to visit in the new york-metro area. We drove over late Saturday morning for brunch at the café, a stroll through the grounds to see the animals, and a stop by the farmer's stand for produce and meat. If you live local or find yourself in the region, I highly recommend a day trip to Stone Barns Center. Additionally, the historic village of Tarrytown is quaint and lovely: it sits right along the Hudson river and is particularly beautiful when it rains. We actually almost moved there two years ago when I was relocating from Manhattan.
At the farm, I love visiting the animals. On this visit, the pigs were particularly rowdy: we got a kick out of watching the aggressive "alpha pig" boss the other pigs around. (S)he wouldn't let any of the others near the water trough! We also saw chickens, turkeys, sheep and cows:
plan an outing, the rain just knows. Ah well, I can't really complain. I love rain. Especially driving through it on twisty country roads.
P.S. Last summer's visit to the farm. Hoping to visit in the fall next time.
