The Suffolk County Farm and Education Center’s mission is to provide hands-on research-based learning to all residents with themes in agriculture, animal sciences, history, STEM, healthy living, and life skills in a unique year-round learning environment and in community spaces. The Farm’s vision is to connect with our agricultural heritage and to pave the way for a bright, healthy, and sustainable future.
Tens of thousands of visitors join us every year at the Suffolk County Farm and Education Center--a real working farm in action! Families can participate in our many special events and get up close to the farm animals. The century-old Farm offers unique educational programs for children Pre-K thru 12th grade, summer day camps, showgrounds, special events, a butterfly house, a certified Nature Explore Classroom and much more. The farm is open to the public -- year round, seven days a week from 9 am to 3 pm.
Get experience with farm animals during Spring break! This 4-H program includes classroom instruction to learn animal husbandry techniques as well as hands-on work with llamas, poultry, sheep, goats, equine, cattle & pigs.
High school Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors who are interested in becoming veterinarians are encouraged to attend this lecture series held on Wednesday evenings in Yaphank.
We can't wait to see you again this summer! Summer Camp at the Farm inspires youth to engage in activities related to agriculture, animal science, nutrition, healthy living, and life skills on a 100 year old working farm.
Suffolk County 4-H Teen Leaders are raising money for their Colorado Exchange Trip this summer. Come on out and show your support.
If your child loves nature, being outdoors, animals, hands-on activities, and making new friends, then the Suffolk County Farm is the place to be for a week off from school!
Through free play, guided exploration and exposure to all corners of the farm, children will be given the chance to learn, grow and become independent learners.
