“Farm animals for the viewing”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

As you proceed into farm country, this farm is an eye opener of what is to come. It is a very good educational farm for the young and for those who had never the opportunity to view farm animals in their past. It can be better, but it is a good first stop.

“Great way to spend a half day in Westchester”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

This is a very enjoyable half day trip for Westchester families. We went with a 5 and 3 year old and basically just let them run around and see things wherever and whenever they wanted. They both loved the cow parade at the end of the day as the cows come into the barn to get milked and fed. That happens around closing time so plan your trip accordingly. Some refreshments are served, but you can pack a snack or lunch. Since admission is free, it can be great inexpensive afternoon.

“A great family outing”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

This is a county-run park that is a working farm. Lots of good programs, animals to observe and pet, and plenty to learn for all ages.

“Peaceful walking, cute farm animals”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

This is a four just for the area. If I were coming from a distance, I would combine it with another local attraction, such as Katonah Museum of art, or John Jay Homestead.
When my kids were small, they loved the baby animals in spring. I come here now for the walking. It's a good, strenuous but not difficult hour + of walking, depending on what trail you take. It is never crowded on the trails and it feels almost remote, though it is local to Somers, Katonah and Yorktown. In the spring after walking, I will often have a look at the babies. There are also plenty of youngsters around then, and Muscoot is a great place for children. A definite must for the area.

“Go with the kids”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Great place for small children to visit with animals. It doesn't take long to walk through the grounds and see everything & it's free
