Queens Farm is one of the longest continually farmed sites in New York State, dating back to 1697. It showcases how a colonial farmstead evolved into a bustling truck farm serving the needs of a growing city.
Queens Farm connects visitors to agriculture and the environment through the lens of its 47-acre historic site, providing learning opportunities and creating conversations about biodiversity, nutrition, health and wellness, climate change and preserving local history. It is a vital and rare resource in an ever-changing, continually developing city, and beyond.
Our grounds are open to the public seven days a week, year-round from 10 am to 5 pm (except on special event days). Stop by the Farm Store / Welcome Center to pick up a site-map.
