The mission of Stone Barns Center is to create a healthy and sustainable food system that benefits us all. Located 25 miles north of Manhattan, Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit institution. We operate an 80-acre farm and work to:

Increase public awareness of healthy, seasonal and sustainable food.  Train farmers in resilient, restorative farming techniques.  Educate children about the sources of their food, and prepare them to steward the land that provides it.

Join us as we work with our natural environment to improve the way America eats and farms. Explore our fields. Stroll through our pastures. Walk our woodlands. Talk with our farmers. Support the cause.

Rex + Penny Antiques


Alissa of MatchaSource.com took me for a spontaneous impromptu visit to a charming newly opened neighboring store called Rex & Penny and introduced me to Jeff - the owner. Wow - the moment I walked in I was in heaven! Flooded with smells and memories of childhood - every piece of furniture and object has soul. Axel Vervoordt would be proud! What's even better is that the prices are affordable - not cheap - but they are not gouging customers (because they could and many places do it). I highly recommend you go in and check them out.

Austere Chic is not about advertizing, but when I fall in love with a store or product ... I want to share it with you.
