Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture is on a mission to create a healthy and sustainable food system that benefits us all.

On 80 acres just 25 miles north of New York City, we operate a highly diversified, four-season farm and an education center that hosts over a hundred thousand visitors each year. As a nonprofit, we work to:

Our food system is on an unsustainable course: resource depletion, environmental degradation, epidemics of disease and obesity, food that doesn’t represent the true costs of its production. We are working to change the way America eats and farms by inspiring people, engaging leaders and the public, developing practices in resilient agriculture and driving choices that benefit human health and the environment. Join us!
