Located in nearby Somers, NY, Muscoot Farm is an early-1900s interpretive farm run by the Westchester Department of Parks open year-round. It offers a peek into the actual workings of a farm more than a century ago and has many of the original buildings, some of which were moved to accommodate the Muscoot Reservoir. Visitors can walk through the dairy barn, milk house, ice house, blacksmith shop and several other barns and buildings. Livestock and poultry are breeds typical of an early 20th century gentleman’s farm and many represent minor rare breeds. The Main House is used to exhibit monthly art shows by local artists.
In addition to visiting its farm and local art, Muscoot has more than seven miles of hiking trails allow visitors to explore some of Muscoot’s 777 acres through fields, woodlands and wetlands. Trail maps are available in the reception center. For the protection of our animals and our visitors, petting and feeding of the farm animals is not permitted and dogs are not allowed at Muscoot.
