Spring Break Open Barn 4H Fundraiser
Our hardworking Stony Ground 4H members will host a special Open Barn fundraiser on March 31 and April 1 from 10 am to 1 pm. Sign up your family for a time slot and make a donation of $10 at the door. Seasoned barn guides and 4H members will be on hand to show off their livestock and projects and sell handmade spring crafts. All funds raised go directly to Stony Ground 4H. Register for a time slot here and support our local future farmers!
Stony Kill maintains a working farm housing chickens, cows, pigs, turkeys and sheep. The daily care of the farm animals is done by our Livestock Caretakers. Each weekend our volunteer barn guides open the barn for visitors to meet our livestock and learn about our programs.
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.
Open Barn is currently open by appointment only. If you would like to join us, please register for ONE TIME SLOT per family. We ask that all visitors arrive on time and anyone over the age of 2 must wear masks in the barn. Children must be accompanied by an adult and families should stay together while touring the barn. We encourage visitors to use our hand sanitizer stations before entering and upon leaving the barn. If you are not feeling well and/or need to cancel your visit please email us at firstname.lastname@example.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!
