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.
