Open Barn


Stony Kill maintains a working farm housing chickens, cows, pigs, and sheep.  The daily care of the farm animals is done by our Livestock Caretakers.  Each weekend our barn guides give tours to the visiting public.

The Barn is open every Saturday and Sunday, from the beginning of February to the end November from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with the exception of days on which special events are held and holidays.

STARTING JULY 2020: Open Barn is currently open by appointment only. If you would like to join us, please register for one time slot. We ask that all visitors arrive on time and anyone age 3 and over must wear masks in the barn. Children must be accompanied by an adult and families should stay together while touring the barn. If you are not feeling well and/or need to cancel your visit please email us at foundation@stonykill.org. Please note that any public programs are subject to change based on NYS guidelines.

Interested in becoming a Barn Guide? Volunteers are needed to give tours of the Barn Arrangements will be made for you to shadow an experienced Barn Guide until you feel comfortable giving tours on your own. We are now offering a new opportunity for parents/guardians to be barn guides with their child. Children must be 11 years of age and be accompanied by an adult. It’s a great opportunity for both to learn about the inner workings of a farm and its livestock while educating others. If you are interested in becoming a Barn Guide, download a Volunteer Application. Once the completed application is received, someone will be in touch with you to make arrangements to have you shadow another Barn Guide. We look forward to hearing from you!
