Dan Barber:

“Blue Hill Farm in Great Barrington, MA was our grandmother’s farm that I spent a lot of time on, growing up. Blue Hill (New York City), and Blue Hill at Stone Barns (Pocantico Hills, NY), are named after that farm, which is not only still functioning but continuing to grow and become more ecologically resilient. I’m inspired by that, and I’m inspired by creating food that supports that. Good food connects you to a healthy landscape and that’s an opportunity that a restaurant shouldn’t overlook. Incredible ingredients come from a great landscape, and I find so much excitement in that. It’s a nice way to be in the world.”
