Queens County Farm Museum

Groups can visit this working, educational farm on a 47-acre site. In the fall, groups of 25 or larger can learn about pumpkins, make pressed apple cider, or take a farmyard tour. In the winter, groups can learn about the art of quilting, the fiber to fabric process of sheep’s wool, or colonial cooking. In the spring, groups can book programs about our historic farmhouse, honey bees, chick embryology, and greenhouses, or a program about farm chores which includes butter-churning and seed planting. In the autumn, pick apples and pumpkins, and take on the Amazing Maize Maze!
