Innovation & Experimentation
Stone Barns Center is a hub of learning, creativity and experimentation. We view our farm as a laboratory dedicated to improving and spreading resilient and sustainable farming practices.
Our farmers are dedicated to continual improvement in pursuit of a truly resilient, sustainable farming enterprise. We continue to hone our practices, such as multispecies rotational grazing and heat generation from compost, to have the least environmental impact.
In all of our experimentation, we convene and partner with a wide range of experts:
- Innovators, such as Glenn Roberts of Anson Mills, the catalyst behind our upland rice experiment
- Engineers and farmers, like Barry Griffin and Eliot Coleman, partners in our Slow Tools Project
