Day-tripping: Muscat Farm

Muscoot Farm: Just one hour north of the city, Muscoot Farm in Katonah, Westchester, makes for a lovely stop for farm-animal viewing and a quiet stroll through the farm’s vast landscape. An early 1900s interpretive farm, the buildings at the farm are currently closed due to the pandemic. But the six-plus miles of hiking trails are open between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day.

The farm boasts dozens of animals (no feeding them) including donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs and horses. The animals are representative of a typical early 20th century “gentleman’s farm,” according to its website, and includes rare breeds. Meander along a network of undulating trails and you get views of the local reservoir, open fields akin to the English countryside and dense woods with glimpses of nearby local mountains.
