Stony Kill Farm Environmental Center

Local nameStony Kill Farm Environmental Education Center
LocationNew York, USA

Stony Kill Farm is located on NY 9D in the Town of Fishkill, New York, United States. It is a 1,000+ acre working farm owned and operated by the state Department of Environmental Conservation as an environmental education center.

In 1683, settlers Gulian Verplanck and Francis Rombout bought the 85,000-acre tract, including the farm, from the Wappinger Indians for goods worth approximately $1,250. In 1708 the Great Partition of this land put the area around the farm in the Verplanck family's hands. Instead of working it themselves, they took in tenant farmers to keep the land worked and productive.
