a big farm in the big city

Tom and I discovered the hidden gem in middle of an urban setting. But it feels very open and large, you will forget where you stand or what surround you. It is a little oasis. So many vegetable, flowers, small animals make me happy and bring me back a little girl. Seasonal farmstand opens in June and of course farm animals are welcome all the time!

The Queens County Farm Museum dates back to 1697 and occupies New York City’s largest remaining tract of undisturbed farmland. The farm encompasses a 47-acre parcel that is the longest continuously farmed site in New York State. The site includes historic farm buildings, a greenhouse complex, livestock, farm vehicles and implements, planting fields, an orchard, and an herb garden.
