Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a fee to enter?
No! As a Westchester County park, Muscoot Farm, the parking lot, and trails are all free to visit. While we do not have an admissions fee, any donations received contribute to the care for our animals and buildings and continued access to public programming.
Are dogs allowed?
No dogs or pets are allowed on the property. This is for the physical, emotional, and medical safety of our animals.
Can I pet the animals or milk a cow?
To keep our animals and visitors safe, petting of our animals is prohibitted. However, we do offer programs, led by a staff member, where you are able to interact with our animals. Please see our Event Calendar to register for these programs.
