Hands-on Egg Collecting at Stone Barns Center – 11 am-11:45 am, 12 pm-12:45 pm

Ages 2+ (Youth must be accompanied by at least one ticketed adult, and all people attending the program must buy a ticket.)

Livestock Tour at Stone Barns Center – 1-2 pm

  • This specialized farm tour will focus on our animals: how they are raised humanely and on pasture rotation; why each breed has been carefully selected for our small farm; and what makes all of our animal products-from fresh eggs to Thanksgiving turkeys to honey-stand apart from the rest. You’ll leave with a true appreciation for our four-season, grass-fed livestock operation and the many ways that animals have a symbiotic relationship with the land that supports them. This tour is appropriate for youth ages 6-14 and for adults. Ages 6+ (All youth must be accompanied by at least one ticketed adult, and all people attending the program must buy a ticket.)

Food Systems Network NYC November Open Networking Meeting & Panel Discussion: Sustainable Meat Distribution: Channels & Challenges, the Second in a Series on Distribution


Meat Week NYC events to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts!
Last year, Food Karma Projects created Meat Week NYC to support small livestock farmers upstate after Hurricane Irene tore through the region. Now post-Hurricane Sandy, we’re turning our focus to those in desperate need in the Rockaways. Harry Rosenblum of The Brooklyn Kitchen/Meat Hook and other summer Rockaway Beach concession operators (Roberta’s, Rockaway Taco) are desperately raising urgent funds now for people in the Rockaways who have lost everything. Our meat will be purchased from Adirondack Grazers, a small co-op of grass fed beef farmers. Among upcoming events, we’re committing all the ticket proceeds from our Modern Beefsteak & Spirits Celebration (Thursday, November 8th) to their efforts. Please support the meat farmer and NYC establishments that have been struggling in the devastation from Hurricane Sandy. Great attendance at these events will help get local businesses back on their feet!
