One of our favorite family day trips is to Stone Barns, a bucolic farm just a short drive from New York City. The kids sign up for egg collecting (we made this zucchini frittata with our beautiful pale blue eggs), meet the huge and magnificent pigs, or take part in their Farmers in Training classes. Harvest Fest featuring Dan Zanes, with yummy food from Blue Hill, Balthazar Bakery, Mast Brothers Chocolate, and what I suspect will be in high demand, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream. We may even stay for a marvelous meal at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, where everything on the plate is raised or grown in the Hudson Valley, either in their own fields or from neighboring farms. Love being able to drop in on this beautiful rural lifestyle.
