day at the farm + parents night out
We loved spending the day friends exploring Stone Barns. It’s on the same property as Blue Hill restaurant which is quite the culinary experience. We did a tasting there for my 30th birthday. I basically chose between a weekend away or dinner at Blue Hill, just to give you some reference around price. I would definitely call myself a foodie….more so from our NYC days so it was well worth it.
What’s great is that even if Blue Hill is not of interest to you, you can still enjoy their incredible setting which is on Stone Barns. It is such a beautiful property. There is not a ton of set activities for children on a normal weekend but the space is perfect for kids. You can still get a taste of Blue Hill on a casual level at the delicious Blue Hill market, which is set perfectly next to a huge area where the kids can ride scooters and play…bring balls! If there is no room at the market you can also head over to the garden where there are picnic tables throughout.
We then took a walk to go explore and saw cows, sheep, a sheepdog + chickens. You could be in Ireland it’s so pretty. We were there for three hours, the perfect amount of time. It is $22 an adult but only $90 for an annual membership. We will go back so it was worth it to just purchase the annual.
On our way home I realized the event we were supposed to be at around 4 o’clock was black and white cocktail attire….not ideal because the only black dress I have is a gown. I had 10 minutes to run into Zara in Greenwich and find something. I blindly bought the outfit below and I can’t recommend it enough. I had these pants in a smaller size and they were too tight…. these are sz 4 and fit like a glove. I absolutely love the shape. A little casual for cocktail attire but we are in the suburbs so …… anything goes…right?
