If you live in New York city area and your kids think that food that lands on the table comes from the supermarket, make room for a trip to the Queens County Farm Museum where history, sustainability and the longest continuously farmed site in New York state cohabitate.
Livestock includes Cotswold sheep, 3 breeds of Heritage Pigs, Large Black, Tamworth, and Gloucester Old Spots, and Italian honey bees.
Check the Map of the Farm before a visit.
Want to get your hands dirty, you can volunteer to help with plantings on Tuesdays and Sundays.
The Queens County Farm Museum is opened daily, year round.
