Great place for hiking. Multiple trails in variety of areas. Great for birding. Areas include fields, woodlands, scrub, ponds, small reservoir. Also great to see the animals at the farm- chickens, varieties of cows, sheep, pigs, sometimes turkeys. various activities planned during the year - like Butterfly Festival

You can walk across wooden bridges and across meadows as well as through the woods. Use tick repellent if you are hiking through some of the overgrown areas. Most of the trails are... More

This coffee shop is two miles from my house but I'm not a regular visitor. I've tried it but it just doesn't suit my taste buds. Obviously somebody likes it. They've been around for a long time. So give it a try and see what you think!

Absolutely loved all the animals in the barn which is over 100 years old. There are sheep, cows, chickens and pigs all for visitors to enjoy and learn about. Periodically, there are wonderful programs presented and festivals on the site.

They are enormous creatures and quite interesting. i have friends who bring their children here often for programs, so do check the website to see what might coincide with your visit. This is a struggling not for... More

Good for a simple afternoon for children to see cows and sheep. If they are having an event, then very worth while to take it in

I've been visiting Stony Kill for decades.

There are over 8 miles of easy hiking trails. I recommend printing a trail map and taking it with you. http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/administration_pdf/skmap0910.pdf .
