What is happening at Queens Farm in the fall? This comprehensive outdoor tour explores the many aspects of our historic, working, sustainable farm. Students learn about what crops we are growing, how we integrate livestock into our practices, and how we recycle food scraps! This program includes a hayride and students have the opportunity to feed a snack of alfalfa to our goats!
Interesting Fact
Our fresh, nutritious farm products are sold only in New York City; our honey, eggs, herbs, and vegetables travel no farther than fifteen miles. Our main retail location is our Gift Shop, located in the greenhouse complex of the farm. In addition, we sell vegetables, bouquets, and herbs at the Union Square Greenmarket on select Fridays throughout the year. Our produce is also featured on the menus of various prominent restaurants in Manhattan and Brooklyn that focus on locally-grown, seasonal vegetables. Any overflow produce is distributed to City Harvest and community food banks.
