Located in scenic Westchester County near Tarrytown, Blue Hill Farm is a fantastic destination for food lovers and families.
The restaurant, Stone Barns, is a four season farm to table affair. The menu mainly features seasonal items either grown by the farm or sourced locally. The building itself is beautiful and provides the ideal back drop for the food. Rather than choosing from a menu, diners are given a list of ingredients being used in the kitchen on that day to build a unique tasting menu. Each course is crafted to showcase these ingredients with such creativity. In winter, you might experience smoked kale or hake with mussels. At other times of the year, you might experience zucchini pasta or beet burgers. Dining here is a whole experience; when you visit, you may be selected to meet the chef and watch him cook. It’s very different, and not your traditional restaurant.
One of my favorite aspects of Blue Hill Farm is that it is a true working farm. From spring through fall, you can take your kids to see how the farm is run. In addition to the many gardens and greenhouses, Blue Hill is home to chickens and sheep. After touring the farm, a stop at the Cafe and Grain Barn lets you recharge with snacks, salads, and baked goods. Or, you can try Blue Hill Farm’s very own yogurt.
