Open Barn

IMG_7036Stony Kill maintains a working farm housing chickens, cows, pigs, and sheep. Our Farm Supervisor oversees the operations, and the daily care of the farm animals is done by our Livestock Caretakers. We rely heavily on volunteers to assist with maintenance and to give the public the opportunity to visit the farm.

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

2015 Stony Kill butterfly festival-0101Barn Guides: Volunteers are needed to give tours of the Barn when it is open to the public. 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!
