A group of 30 local seniors got to enjoy the fresh air and sights of the Queens County Farm on September 24.
Guided by Councilman Barry Grodenchik, the tour of the Queens farm was conducted while all visitors were masked and socially distanced.
The tour of the 47-acre farm in Glen Oaks was part of a month-long schedule of events for Senior Appreciation Month.
Seniors learned about the farm’s planting fields, historic buildings, greenhouse complex, and its livestock, including chickens, goats and steer. The seniors also enjoyed a fun hayride.
“Queens County Farm Museum, the premiere cultural institution in eastern Queens, is truly a gem,” Grodenchik said. “It was my honor to bring a few dozen local seniors for a socially distanced tour of the farm on this beautiful autumn morning.”
