According to their website Muscoot Farm:

…was originally a “Gentleman’s Farm” founded by Ferdinand T. Hopkins in 1880 and operated as a dairy farm until Westchester County acquired the property in the late 1960s. Today, Muscoot Farm is a Westchester County Park that strives to preserve and interpret its agrarian past. Visitors may stroll through the original barns, visit with the animals, participate in educational programs or hike the many miles of trails. There is something for everyone on Muscoot’s 777 acres!

While there’s not as much to do as at Barton Orchards it’s still a great place to take small kids.  They can look at sheep, goats, cows, pigs, ducks, turkeys etc.  It will keep them interested for an hour or two.

Grommit the cat. He’s not at all as fierce as he appears in the picture. He’s really quite sweet.  I just happened to catch him yawning.
