About the Queens County Farm Museum
The Queens County Farm Museum is a 47-acre working farm dating back to 1697. We are a public resource, visited by over 400,000 people each year. The site includes a landmark farmhouse, glass greenhouse, and restored barns which provide us with a glimpse into our agrarian past. Its rich glacial soil–which attracted European settlers in the 17th century–is cultivated today using sustainable practices, providing people with the freshest food. We are a New York City treasure where historic structures, productive fields, livestock and busy beehives bring agricultural history to life.
