We were wondering why there are so many that haven't been torn down? [more inside]

Hudson Valley, NY farm visits?

What are some particularly noteworthy farms to visit in Hudson Valley, NY? Obviously, they would need to be open to the public, but I don't necessarily need a formal tour- if they have nice grounds and interesting foodstuffs for sale, that's just fine. We'll be staying in Hudson, but have a car.

Red barns

Being a city person, I am curious about why so many barns on the farms I see when driving around the country are painted red. Why is the color red seem to be the most common barn color? Or, is it just the farm neighborhoods I have been through? LAG
