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!
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.
Muscoot Farm and all the animals are located just south of the intersection between Route 35 and Route 100 in the town of Somers on Route 100.
There is a main parking lot which is located just off Route 100, and overflow parking across the street.
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.
