Where are we going today?

The Queens County Farm Museum's history dates back to 1697; it occupies New York City's largest remaining tract of undisturbed farmland and is the only working historical farm in the City. The farm encompasses a 47-acre parcel that is the longest continuously farmed site in New York State. The farm animals and tranquil agrarian environment provide the opportunity to leave the hectic daily pace behind for an enjoyable visit to a farm without leaving the City. The site includes historic farm buildings, a greenhouse complex, livestock, farm vehicles and implements, planting fields, an orchard and herb garden. As the only remaining vestige of New York City's agricultural past, the farm museum provides urban audiences with graphic evidence of the process through which farm products move from soil to table. Other important elements of the farm's interpretation include our barns and outbuildings, livestock, an orchard, honey bee hives, herb garden and a greenhouse complex. The museum offers a broad range of educational programs for children and adults; a variety of annual special events; weekend visitor tours and services; and corporate and private site rentals.

    I visited with family on a Saturday afternoon this summer (2014). I enjoyed viewing the animals and the farm itself.
    After our stroll through the farm we were able to purchase fresh pick vegetables to take home. But we just missed the eggs because they sold out before we could get the register. However, I took home some corn, tomatoes and their mustard seed for seasoning.
    We cooked the vegetables that same night and they were absolutely delicious. The freshness was also evident in the sweetness of the corn especially!
    I cant wait go again....Read More

    I've lived in Queens my whole life and I did not know this place existed! This place is free admission and has so many farm animals you can watch or play with! There are lots of dirt roads so make sure you wear the right shoes for the area. The place also has a gift shop selling from organic produce, house plants, to bottles of wine. The museum is definitely a beautiful place to relax and enjoy true nature with plenty of fields and crops. You can also go on a hay ride!!! (though you would need to pay a fee)

    Tried to get to the children's fall festival yesterday, the line was over two blocks long. We were disappointed we couldn't get in. Maybe it should be the whole weekend, not just on Sunday.

I cant wait go again. It makes a great outing for children - my nephew loved petting the animals.
