Road Trip Close to Home: Queens County Farm Museum

It’s that time of year again – the crisp autumn air is setting in and the leaves are changing. For families looking for all the fun of fall, the Queens County Farm Museum is home to the Big Apple’s only corn maze.

“Between the apple cider donuts, the wagon rides and the corn maze…It’s just a bucolic place. It’s a wonderful place to connect with nature,” said Jennifer Walden-Weprin, executive director of the museum.

The Queens County Farm Museum is home to New York’s only corn maze. Designed from above to look like a Georgia O’Keefe painting, the Queens County Farm Museum can even be visited at night for a spooky trail.

The area is a real working farm of 47 acres.

“I think people are surprised that there are alpacas, sheep, chickens, goats, pigs all living here in New York,” Walden-Weprin says.

Don’t forget that you can feed the sheep and the goats! You can buy the food in the store.

The farm is also home to vintage tractors that visitors can explore as well as the on-site shop and animals. Farms are open until early November.

After the fun of the fall season, the museum hosts a number of events including the Winter Lantern Festival. The farm will be illuminated with Chinese lanterns for the enjoyment of the whole family.
