Where are we going today?
Did you know that Muscoot farm used to be a "Gentleman's Farm"? Do you know what that is? All the most reason to visit so you can ask when you are there! There are friendly staff who can tell you all the hidden little secrets about this farm.
The farm was founded in 1880 and operated as a dairy farm until Westchester County acquired the property in the late 1960s so there is a lot of history to learn about and appreciated! Of course, the animals are the originals....
You can have a stroll through the original barns, say hello to the super cute animals and spend the day wandering around in the beautiful nature! There are sometimes even sweet new-born baby animals to visit! Which one will be your favorite?
If you want to take a stroll there are 777 acres with numerous hiking trails on to enjoy with your family. Maybe you can spot some wildlife? Or maybe you just want to play in the leaves? (That was always a favorite of ours!)
If you want to have a little ride, grab a 25 minute hayride during spring, summer and fall! For those wanting to keep their feet on the ground, there is a beautiful vegetable garden to enjoy.
There are also a great number of special events throughout the year, including very spooky Halloween ones (don't worry - the animals are very brave!)
Move over Old McDonald - Muscoot is here!
How much does it cost?
When can we go?

Very knowledgeable farm educators offer very age-appropriate educaiton programs for groups in the fall and spring. Mondays and Tuesdays are reserved for the older elementary students, and Wednesday thru Friday are for the younger students. Note group size is limited. .
Any Top Tips?
Hayrides are only available to the public Sunday afternoons, weather permitting of course, May through October. You don't need to reserve these, but there is a fee of $2 per person. .
Doing our bit
The farm run off donations to allow visitors free entry so if you had a great time, tell your friends or give a little! .
Groups are discouraged on visiting weekends as there are so many other people wanting to visit! So best on weekdays! .

My children attended Muscoot Farm Little Wranglers and Little Farmers Camp in 2014.
We were very disappointed in the program. The "crafts" were just cheap Xeroxed hand-outs that they could color-in. They no longer did the hayrides with the children. Most of the children seemed bored. Some members of the staff were off-putting and did not seem to understand young children, although others were nice.

Nice state park that is very educational for the little ones and a nice place for the entire family on the weekends. During the summer they have a wonderful farmer's market full of baked goods, seafood and other vendors. Definitely a nice find in the Hudson Valley.
