Blue Hill Café at Stone Barn is a beautiful place to visit for those who love food and nature – set in Pocantico Hills, New York. My favorite was the farro with asparagus and wild mushroom salad!

The Blue Hill Cafe offers light snacks, farm fresh lattes, and other locally grown goodies. I have been here many times and the food is always delicious. It is a perfect place to go on a warm day and sit outside in their courtyard or walk around the farm. The shelves are stocked with seasonal jams and pickles.

I frequently visit Blue Hill Cafe at Stone Barn for a quick snack and hike around the property. The other day when I went to visit we had farro with asparagus and wild mushrooms (delicious), focaccia with roasted broccoli, a bologna sandwich with relish (from the farm, of course), and a chocolate tart. Be sure to get there early if you want to enjoy their delicious soups, it sells out quickly! They ran out by the time we got there!

After you have a snack at the Cafe you can take a walk around the farm and visit the many animals they have spread out over the property. Stone Barn is a great place to hike, visit the chickens, cows, lambs, pigs, turkeys, and many more.

When you finishing ‘ooing” and “ahhing” over the animals take walk around the farm and walk through their vegetables gardens (both indoor and outdoor). Stone Barn has many vegetable gardens where you can see their harvest of the season.

Even though Stone Barn is just a few miles off Route 117 you feel like you transported elsewhere. This is a perfect place to visit on a warm day, beware of weekends though, it gets pretty crowded.  On one of my next trips to Stone Barn I hope to try their restaurant.
