MANHATTAN — Michelle Obama could have another chance to vent about the frustrations of being First Lady at a New York luncheon that she’s reportedly hosting next week for the wives of world leaders in town for the U.N. general assembly.

FLOTUS, who made headlines earlier this week after allegedly complaining about her first lady responsbilities to French first lady Carla Bruni, will lead her star-studded group on a tasting tour of New York’s sustainable agriculture that ends at Blue Hill's West Village eatery.

The day will begin with a trip to the upstate Stone Barns Center, a nonprofit farm and educational center about 25 miles north of the city, which hosts the organic culinary mecca, Blue Hill.

The Obamas savored some of the agriculture from the farm last year, when they went on a date to Blue Hill's Greenwich Village eatery.

“Stone Barns Center is part of a national movement to create a sustainable food system that benefits the community’s health and environment,” the White House said in a statement obtained by the Post.

“The Center teaches children, farmers, chefs and thousands of annual visitors about a better way of growing food.”

Obama and the dignitaries will reportedly take a tour of center, and will watch students from a local school as they collect eggs and harvest vegetables they way they were taught to by the center, the Post reported.

The tour will conclude with a meal at Blue Hill restaurant at Washington Square Park, where the first wives will reportedly nosh on a feast gathered from the upstate farm.
