Farming in America's Biggest City
Farmers markets provide urban and suburban residents a chance to buy fresh products and to meet farmers and ranchers and learn more about where food comes from. Explore a farm-to-fork connection on a working farm in a most unexpected location: New York City.


The Queens County Farm Museum dates back to 1697. It constitutes the Big Apple’s largest remaining undisturbed farmland. The site includes historic farm buildings, a greenhouse complex, livestock, farm vehicles, and planting fields where the museum staff raises a variety of crops. The museum not only preserves a historical site but helps share modern farming practices with city folk.
