About Stone Barns Center

Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture was established as a nonprofit organization. Its goal is to teach visitors about the sources of food, demonstrate farm-driven cuisine, and bring the field and pasture to the plate. Stone Barns Center’s focus on education is inspired by young farmers and their future, as well as the current food system. All of Stone Barns’ education programs encourage food citizens from near and far to make healthier choices for themselves and the planet by teaching about the food system and sustainable farming practices.

“The ingredients — many from the surrounding farm, others from the family farm of the executive chef and co-owner, Dan Barber, in Great Barrington, Mass. — are so fresh and often unexpected, the preparations so thoroughly considered and the presentation so delightful that it has the power to shift your perspective.”

—Emily DeNitto, New York Times
