THE BUZZ: On Friday, September 21st, 2012, I was hanging out with the horses (and people) at the Old Stone Farm. I was interviewing Global Change Scholars – women from around the world who were selected by the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies for their empowering work. They were staying at the farm and I had the opportunity to join them in an experiential horse workshop led by Kathy Krupa.
Founded in 2012 by Sherry and Stu Kahn, Old Stone Farm is a wellness and education center dedicated to social awakening through personal transformation. Located on a magnificent, 236 acre horse farm in the heart of New York’s Dutchess County, it is a “field of dreams” and sanctuary for spiritual development.
Sherry has restored the 200-year-old farm with impeccable care, preserving its authentic 18th and 19th century historical buildings, hand choosing the antique furnishings and art, maintaining as much of Old Stone Farm’s history as possible – while powering with environmentally sustainable solar and geothermal energy. If you are looking for a personal retreat, certainly check out this oasis. The food is also healthy and delicious!
