We've been livestock farming and hosting fun, unique and educational farm experiences for over 20 years for groups of all ages and interests. Stone & Thistle Farm, a pasture-based livestock farm in East Meredith, NY, raises 100% grass-fed beef, lamb, goat, pork, rabbits and poultry for sale at farmers markets. The farm operates a farm stay, seasonal restaurant (Fable=farm+table) for events, farm tours and workshops.
Lunch is served in the farm's restaurant, Fable and is expertly prepared with the farm's bounty of meat, dairy and vegetables
Farm work make us thirsty. We pause for drinks of water, cider or lemonade.

Where you'll be
The adventure begins with a tour of the farm. Chores may include, depending on the season, collecting eggs in the hen pastures and greenhouses, feeding pigs, sheep and goats in the lower pastures, checking on the cattle and sheep at the upper farm a few minutes away (we can hike or travel by pick up truck) with the border collies, bottle feeding lambs or kid goats and milking goats. The day ends with lunch in the farm's restaurant, Fable.
