Muscoot Farm

You can have a lot of fun in a New York minute
But there's some things you can't do inside those city limits...
Ain't no closing time, ain't no cover charge
Just country boys and girls down on the farm...

{Tim McGraw -- Down on the Farm}

We took advantage of a perfect October day and drove up to Katonah to explore Muscoot Farm. 

Muscoot Farm was originally a gentleman's farm (they farmed for pleasure vs profit) owned by the Hopkins family. At first, they used it as their summer home and as a dairy farm. Then, in 1924, the family moved to the farm year-round and continued the dairy business until 1967 when the County took over the property. 

Today it's home to the original buildings and 50+ animals. We didn't see their pigs or donkeys but saw loads of other adorable farm animals. The buildings are closed due to COVID but it was fun to explore the property and see how extensive the farm was back in the day. 

There was a farmer's market there when we arrived which was a fun fall bonus. A total gem in the county!

I'm totally asking people if they're giving me a "cow's worth of distancing" from now on!!! Love it!

Love the cow's distance sign! I saw one recently that advised three pigs' distance. LOL! Beautiful place you visited!

What a neat place to visit. The Cow sign was funny and that cow itself was pretty cute.
