Stony Kill Farm relies on fundraisers to raise the necessary capital for our annual operational expenses and livestock care. We have several fundraisers throughout the year including our Hog Raffle, Bird Seed Sale and Plant Sale. Please subscribe to our email updates to keep informed and help support our effort.
Stony Kill Farm is a 1,000 acre Environmental and Education Center located in New York’s Hudson Valley. We offer educational workshops and classes to children and adults about farming, environmental issues, and conservation. Stony Kill Farm has livestock that we care for. The animals are a integral part of our programming. Stony Kill Farm is the home to many sheep, cows, pigs, and chickens. The kids love them! We offer school field trips and farm to table education for NYC children. Seven years ago our funding was drastically reduced by NYS. Our farm was slated to be closed. Through a letter writing and petition campaign we were allowed to stay open, BUT we needed to become self supporting. We have stayed open through the hard work of our volunteers and by donations. WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! Our veterinary bills and animal feed bills are very high. Please help us feed and care for our animals. Clink on this link to donate to SKF!’s Crowdrise campaign!
Spring 2018 HOG RAFFLE drawing.
The Stony Kill Foundation, Inc. operates a working farm at Stony Kill. Each year, the hogs are brought to market to make way for piglets to be used for educational programming. In an effort to raise some much-needed funds for the Foundation to continue our operations at Stony Kill by maintaining the livestock, a hog will be raffled off.
The hog will be processed by Malafy’s Meat Processing LLC in Red Hook. The winner will have an opportunity to tell us what cuts of meat (bacon, ham, pork chops, sausage, etc.) they want. The value of what the winner receives is about $600.
Tickets are available by request at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can download tickets and send in to the address below. Checks should be made to the
