A few weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon we took a trip up to Stone Barns with my parents to get Avi some face time with animals and a good amount of fresh air for all of us.
It was my first time there and I was thoroughly impressed. While the farm and restaurant are far from vegan, the whole grounds are run responsibly and sustainably. From the free roaming of the animals to the compost toilet to the multiple recycling areas to the uh-mazing food, I was in heaven and can't wait to go back when the weather is a bit warmer.
Avi had an amazing time visiting the animals, she didn't want to leave. And the guy tending to the chickens and sheep took so much time answering all of our questions about the animals and how they live that we felt really special.
We got some food from the cafe (there is a restaurant too, but it's a much fancier ordeal) and sat outside at a table in the square where a bunch of people were hanging. We ate cabbage toast and a cauliflower pureed soup that was perfect for the sunny, yet brisk afternoon!
