Come over for a visit. Stay for three days, if you like.

The Queens County Farm Museum will hold a Holiday Open House from Tuesday, Dec. 26, through Thursday, Dec. 28, from noon to 4 p.m. on all three days. Admission is free.

Visitors will be able to frolic around in a winter wonderland, checking out the orchard, vineyard, herb garden, and stables. Then they’ll be able to warm up by the fireplace in the Adriance Farmhouse, which was built in 1772 and is named after the Dutch family that owned the property for more than 100 years and over five generations.

The structure will be decorated for the holidays, and employees will organize seasonal children’s craft activities and serve hot mulled cider there. Farm products such as freshly laid eggs, raw honey, yarn, plants, seedlings, and possibly even wine will be on sale in the gift shop.

Back outside, cattle, sheep, pigs, hens, and goats will be around. (Some of the animals like to be petted.)

Located off Little Neck Parkway in Glen Oaks, the Queens Farm is New York City’s largest remaining farmland with more than 47 acres. In operation since 1697, it is also the Big Apple’s only working farm with livestock, heavy farm machinery, and planting fields.

When the weather is warm, this NYC Landmark, which is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places, hosts an antique motor show, hayrides, a recurring farmstand, a Native American pow-wow, a county fair, and a massive Easter egg hunt.
