Welcome to the Photography Policy page of Stone Barns Center. As a premier destination for nature enthusiasts, agricultural education, and sustainable farming practices, we value the capturing of memorable moments through the lens. However, to ensure the safety and privacy of our visitors, staff, and resident animals, we have established this comprehensive Photography Policy.
