Shopping at local Farmer’s Markets the past few years and anticipating the opening of this year’s market in town has birthed a new inspiration, a visit to a local farm. Stone Barns is a four-season working farm rich in history. It sits on 80 acres of gardens, woods, and pastures where community-based farming blends with modern living not to mention a restaurant that sources the majority of its menu from the farm. It was something along the lines of “love at first sight” for me when I drove up the farm entrance drive and has ultimately inspired me deeply to become more involved in community-based farming and sustainable farming.
