Blue Hill at Stone Barns

Blue Hill at Stone Barns

Sometimes the best part of living in Manhattan is the ability to escape it and visit extraordinary locals that are close by, like Blue Hill at Stone Barns. On a recent trip to their Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture my husband and I brought our daughter to run free with hundreds of well cordoned off wild turkeys, observe pigs in their muddy surroundings and watch produce grow in hothouses. Their on-property farm stand is just beautiful and well-appointed selling beans like these. www.bluehillfarm.com

As much as I miss the summer months and my daily visits to the farm stands on the East End I’ve just discovered a blissful replacement in Good Eggs in Brooklyn Market. They deliver, straight to your NYC doorstep, fresh produce, dairy and locally curated sweet and savory goodies. Check out the yumminess here www.goodeggs.com.

Every Hue

Every Hue

The gardening shop Terrain in Westport has eye-catching moments everywhere you look and sells any item you could think of when discussing gardening gadgets. Their packets of blooms to plant are gorgeous, their boots, tools and inspiration books are all practical but thoughtful and the shop is stocked with fun seasonal items at all times. Look how adorable these mini glass ornaments are and so adorably displayed. The restaurant is a must visit, or the cafe for a glass of wine.
