Outward Hound: John Jay Homestead Welcomes Brooklyn Dogs

The grounds of the estate of the United States’ first Chief Justice will be the site of an extraordinary Farmers’ Market every Saturday beginning June 25 and running through Oct.15.

No pet sitter necessary.  Bring your Barker!

Leashed dogs are most welcome at the 62 acre grounds of the John Jay
Homestead on Route 22 in Katonah where there are glorious gardens and hiking trails for you both to enjoy.

The history of the Farmers’
Markets at Homestead dates back to the 1860’s when they were the hub of community activity.  Today, you can
purchase extraordinary meats and produce from renowned local farms:  pork, green vegetables, smoked trout and fresh herbs from Cabbage Hill Farm in Mt. Kisco; sweet corn, tomatoes, peaches, apples from JD Farms in Brewster; and handmade soap, lip balm and candles from Clean Ridge Soap Co. of Pound Ridge.

If the weather is cool enough, park in the shade with windows cracked open so pup and produce stay cool while you visit inside the home of our local Founding Father.  John Jay’s many public roles included principal
negotiator of the Treaty of Paris, which ended the Revolutionary War, Secretary for Foreign Affairs of the United States, first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and second Governor of New York State.  He was co-author of the Federalist Papers and a staunch
abolitionist.

Now part of the NYS Park System, the house has been restored as originally built by Jay and there are tours on the hour from 8 am - 6 pm.

Just 45 minutes from Brooklyn by car, you can spend a day in the country and come home with goodies to eat, pride in our country’s history and a happy, tired pup.
