The Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, a non-profit founded by David Rockefeller and his daughter, Peggy Dulany, is set to open in May 2004. The Stone Barns Center is located in Pocantico, the 4,000 acre country estate in Westchester County established by oil magnate John D. Rockefeller, Sr.

According to the Stone Barns Center Web site, its mission is “to demonstrate, teach, and promote sustainable, community-based food production”:

Our goal is to find a modern expression for the traditional diversified family farm in this new age of industrial scale agriculture. When the renovation of Stone Barns is complete, the Center will consist of a multipurpose educational facility, an environmentally sustainable farm with a minimally heated greenhouse and outdoor production gardens, a restaurant and café, with adjacent walking trails, grazing pastures, and meadows.

Blue Hill at Stone Barns, an extension of Blue Hill in New York City, will operate a working farm, restaurant, and educational center at Stone Barns. The 125-seat restaurant promises a “seasonal, ingredient driven menu” prepared under the direction of executive chef Michael Anthony and chef/owner Dan Barber.

Blue Hill at Stone Barns opens for business on May 1. Reservations can be made by calling 914.366.9600.

If I ever manage to get home to the East Coast, this place is going on THE LIST of things to do.

 

I was there today to meet with the wine directors and get them set with wines from my company, and I have to say I am awed. This place is gorgeous!! What they are doing is admirable, but more importantly, it is being done with the utmost of dedication and taste. I can't wait until they are open. . . !

 

Thanks for the inside report, Meg! The Center and the restaurant sound very exciting, and the pictures look beautiful. Did you taste any of the food?

 

It is a good looking place... but the food does not yet measure up to the very high cost.
Given time, hopefully it will get better.

 

I've been there 3 or 4 times now, the grounds and buildings are bueatiful, the wine list is excellent, however, the one thing that is a must taste on the menu is the crescent duck. it is the most unbelievable dish I have ever had. Don't ever take it off the menu.
