nyc pastureThe Queens County Farm Museum and Brooklyn Based welcome you to spent your 4th of July under the stars.  We're hosting a camp out on the farm on Saturday night and we hope you'll join us.  


Marlow & Daughter's  Tom Mylan will be roasting a farm fresh pig and the farm crew will throw veggies on the grill.  We’ll have pulled pork sandwiches, plus salads and sides, pie, and more from Sweet Deliverance. Brooklyn Brewery will be serving up locally made brews.

We’ll have a DJ, musical guests, play capture the flag, kick the can and maybe even flashlight tag on the farm.

In the morning we’ll be serving a breakfast that includes just-gathered eggs straight from the farm, seasonal fruit muffins and scones and of course, coffee.

Tom PigFood, beer, music, games, a camping spot and parking all included in your $80 per adult ticket.  Check info on kids below.  Tents (which you can rent here) and transportation are up to you. We will provide car services to the LIRR on Sunday morning. Get tickets here.

The farm is open to visitors all day, but the fun and food will really get started shortly after 5 pm, when the gates close to the public.

FAQ:

(1) Q:  Is the event kid friendly? A:  Kids under 10 don't have to buy a ticket as long as they are with their parents or adults; one kid per adult ticket basically, except for babies.  Bring all the babies you want; they're cute.

(2) Q: Can I bring my dog? A: Nope.  Dogs are not permitted on the farm.  It wasn't our idea-- the pigs, goats, sheep, chickens, and ducks requested this policy and that it be strictly enforced.

(3) Q: Can we buy a cheaper ticket if we bring our own food and drinks?  A: Sorry, one ticket price per adult is the best way for us to do this.  

(4) Q: Where will we camp, put up our tent?  A:  When you arrive at the farm and check in, we'll lead you to the camping spots, in the back of our farm away from the roads, lights and noise of the city.  Tents of any size are permitted.

(5) Q: What should I bring?  A: Bottled water, environmentally friendly insect repellant and snacks are all good ideas.  Hammocks, frisbees, soccer balls, camping stoves if you want to make your own stuff.  No fireworks, please.
