Draft Pub: Stone Barns Center

3

 f you’ve ever written your own blog, you know there’s a nifty little feature called “save,” where you can put off publishing your post till later.  That works great for procrastinating writers and busy editors (of which I am both), but sometimes it backfires, and the draft log becomes much larger than you’d like. When that happens to me, I feel compelled to purge what I’ve been saving. So today I’m launching a new feature I like to call “Draft Pub.”  It has nothing to do with beers or bars, but I think the name is kind of catchy, and the act of it gets you the information I’ve been hoarding for way too long.

Back when we were getting ready for the Locally Grown cook-off, we went to Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture in Pocantico Hills for b-roll and to advance the Harvest Festival. Here are the photos I took while we walked around the property.

  1. I guess it wouldn’t be a bad idea for Stone Barns to open a pub serving draft beer made from their own hops! But I really liked these photos – especially the ducks and sheep. The sunflowers look spectacular.

  2. Hi Liz, I nominated my husband, Pat Luciano, as my favorite chef twice in October. I included a little slide show I put together using photos of a summer family dinner where Pat and his nephew and sons were the chefs. Please let me know if you received them. I’ve sent them twice and don’t know if I’m sending them correctly. Thanx for your help. Ali
