Rapper Kanye West was seen visiting Grace Farms in New Canaan on Friday.

As reported by Page Six and documented in a series of Instagram posts, West was seen walking around the grounds of the 80-acre farm along with social media influencer Chris Smoove

The rapper also appeared in a video with Smoove, who was guessing the cost of West's clothing. 

In another Instagram photo posted by a Kanye West fan account, West was seen taking a photo with staff members of Grace Farms.

According to Cosmopolitan, West was in the area for Kim Kardashian West's hosting of "Saturday Night Live" in New York City, which he was also in attendance for. Kardashian West filed for divorce from West in February; however, they retain joint custody of their four children. 

The farm, which is run by the Grace Farms Foundation, invites people from the community to participate in activities that range from birdwatching to religious courses. The famous River building, which was designed by Japanese architectural firm SANAA, opened in 2015.
