Sunday morning at Stone Barns

August 1, 2011 |  Category:   life outings

We had a weekend of extremes: Saturday the girls and I laid around the apartment and didn’t do much except to go get bagels in the middle of the day, but Sunday was super action packed. We started the day off at Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture. You can read more about the place here. We didn’t eat at the fancy restaurant, but did get lunch at the Blue Hill Cafe and ate in the courtyard. There must have been a wedding or event that day because there were lots of women dressed in breezy summer white dresses and guys in seersucker and crisp button down shirts. Or maybe people dress like that all the time to go to brunch on the farm, I don’t know. Stay tuned for tomorrow to see where we ended up the second half of our Sunday.

    Looks like an amazing place. We have a similar thing here in Toronto, an old brickworks conversion, such a great place for kids and grown-ups alike!

    Aw, Stone Barns is one of my favorite getaways from the city. I would highly recommend going in the fall. It’s even more beautiful then.

  • Jenna August 1, 2011 at 11:28 am

    @Alice We definitely plan to!!

    I want those granola and sandwiches! I’m drooling just by looking at these photos. Your kids are so adorable and pretty!!! Photos are amazing as well. I have never been to Stone Barns Center, I will definitely keep it in mind and visit the next time I’m in NY. Excited for the other half!

    You should make prints of the onions in a crate photo. Gorg.

    hmmmmmm, now you’ve got me guessing! As if Stone Barn weren’t a hike enough outta the city. Maybe you went to Storm King again… Zach and I were up there for a wedding a couple weekends ago and I was dying to go, but not willing to die in that 108-degree heat. Can’t wait to find out what you did!!

    Oh yes — beautiful photos, as always. πŸ˜€

    Absolutely stunning photography. Photography of food is what most catches my attention, the first pic especially is beautifully taken. looks like you guys had a lovely day.

  • Jessa August 1, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    looks like a wonderful morning! are you guys not at the flea on sundays anymore?

    oh wow πŸ™‚ I was just there last weekend. It’s so cool to see both our points of view of the place. I love it up there. I am actually going to shoot their harvest event. Have you eaten at Blue Hill? One of the best meals I have ever had in the restaurant world. It looks so much more crowded then when we were there. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

    that first picture is mouthwatering. I want to eat that, stat.

  • yj August 1, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    One of my favorite places to visit – food always delicious, kiddos always have fun gathering eggs/picking veg, and generally geeking out over the animals and fields. Harvest Fest in October is a lot of fun as well. Yippee for day trips!

    Did you see Rolls Royces?! When I was there last Wednesday, there were at least six Rolls in the upper parking lot. My sister and I were like, woaaaa. Love Stone Barns though we did have that awkward moment where we realized the cute baby turkeys were destined for the Thanksgiving table. Yikes!

    Oh it’s so fun to see your photos of the farm (I just posted about my own visit there). It definitely looks more busy than it was when I went during the week. And of course, kudos to you for snapping a few food shots…we too ate at the cafe but I devoured my meal before my camera even had a chance!

    I found your blog a week or so ago.
    I absolutely love coming by once a day… you remind me to stay natural.

    Don’t know if that makes much sense πŸ™‚ but it’s true

    have a good one!
