⪧ We left our life in New York City to make a new one in Provence ⪦

Blue Hill at Stone Barns.



On that idyllic farm 30 minutes north of Manhattan...is a tractor. Colette found it and drove for a long while.



There are divine bouquets of freshly cut flowers from their fields.





Chickens grazing the way they were meant to, not in some terrifying factory-farmed broiler house situation.



Younglings growing in the greenhouse swelter.



Pig tails. Colette loved the pig tails and their constant snorting.



Long, winding trails in the woods. Colette took a long nap on a long walk where we got lost and enjoyed all the moments of the stillness around - the mushrooms and the water and the ripening strawberries.









Patchwork fields of crops. So beautiful.





On Sundays there is a farmer's market and a lovely cafe for baked goods and brunch (and of course, a renowned restaurant for the rather well-heeled - the restaurant purchases 70% of the farm's goods for its food).

I took Jordan and Meredith there for a divine birthday celebration last year. So mazing. Being served their delectable bites was like being in a ballet...every mover choreographed to delight!

Looks like heaven on earth to me. I think Grandpa Vere would be so pleased with Colette's tractor skills.

Emilie said...

Totally agreed, Emily. Grandpa Vere would be proud.

Love your description of the restaurant, Holly...
