The Space

The Farmhand Cabin is located on a working livestock farm a short distance from the farmhouse overlooking Kortright Creek. The one-room cabin is 10 feet by 11 feet and accommodates up to two adults and two small children. To accommodate additional persons, a tent is provided with advance notice or bring your own. The Cabin has electricity and is equipped with an electric heater. It includes a refrigerator, hot plate, toaster oven and fire pit for cooking. The Cabin has an outdoor solar shower, wash sink and compost toilet.

Includes cold breakfast of juice, milk, yogurt, granola and hard boiled eggs - all from the farm. Other meals are self prepared or opt for a hot farmstead breakfast served at Fable for $15 per adult and $8 per child (9 and under). Meats, cheese, dairy and produce available in the farm's store.

“Morning Tour & Chores”, following breakfast (1 1/2 to 2 hours), is $30 per family and Farmer for A Day, a half-day farm adventure, is $200 for up to four people. Other farm programs include butchering, cooking and eating workshops. See website (URL HIDDEN) for details. All programs require 24 hours or more advance notice and reservations.
Dinner is served at Fable = a farm + table culinary experience on Saturday nights in the farmhouse’s modern addition. The menu features the best of the farm’s meats, dairy and produce. A five-course dinner costs $55 per person. The prix-fixe menu is available on the website. The farm tour and brunch are on Sundays from Memorial Day to Columbus Day. The cost is $25 per person; children 5 and under are half price. Reservations are required. With at least one day advance notice, a private dinner basket can be delivered to the cabin for $38 for three courses or $55 for five courses (wine included in five-course option) per person.

The Neighborhood

Check in is 3 - 9pm. We are a small, working farm. Late arrivals are very disruptive. We wake up before sunrise, so we go to bed early. There is a $35 late arrival fee for arrivals after 10pm. If you get delayed in traffic or lost, we would appreciate a call or email to let us know your arrival time

We've gotten great press - most recently from Thrillist "10 Insanely Awesome Farm Activities You can Drive To" ; Bon Appetit's Food Traveler as Top 25 Foods Farms & Flavors Tourism Destination ; NOFA's summer newsletter; and a wonderful blog post from NewYorkCityFamily.

House Rules
Check-in time is 3PM - 9PM.

You are guests on a working farm with cattle, pigs, lambs, goats, ducks, geese, chickens, guinea hens, rabbits, border collies and livestock guardian dogs AND all the sights, sounds and aromas that go with a working farm. Please note that meals, including breakfast, are not included. Breakfast at Fable is included for additional fee.

No pets allowed on the farm. We love dogs (we have 8) but because the livestock guardian dogs work hard day and night to protect our livestock, your pet would be considered a threat to them and is not safe on our farm.

New York, United States · Member since September 2012

Farm owner with husband Tom Warren and son Shane of Stone & Thistle Farm, a grass based livestock farm, Kortright Creek Creamery, a goat dairy and small creamery and Fable=farm+table - a seasonal on-farm restaurant. We are passionate about farming, great food and sharing with our community. Our busiest time of the year is May to October when we do farmers markets, farm tours, dinners and brunch and Fable, farm events, farm chores, projects, building, repairing, vetting, gardening - but we are never too busy to meet new people and learn something new and different. As a guest on our farm, you can participate in farm chores or relax on the farm, eat great farm fresh food, enjoy nearby hiking, swimming, skiing or shopping for books, antiques, visiting farmers markets, museums or state parks.
