Those who don’t have the $300 or so it takes to dine and drink at Blue Hill Stone Barns upstate can still check out Stone Barns’ annual Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 1, for just 35 bucks. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with hayrides, a Berkshire pig roast (for cash purchase), a market with fresh produce and products from the likes of Balthazar Bakery and Luke’s Lobster, and workshops on everything from farming to making homemade sodas, pickling, and raising chickens. In other words, all the stuff the D.I.Y. set in Brooklyn is into, only on a real farm. All proceeds benefit the education component of the Stone Barns nonprofit; tickets available here.
