The Art Farm in The City’s mission and philosophy focuses on stimulating a child’s spirit of exploration, and educating them about nature. Children enjoy a number of fun, creative activities including arts and crafts, creative play, engaging time with over 50 animals in our Award-Winning, indoor petting zoo, healthy snacks, and even sports in our summer camps. Even our all-inclusive birthday party packages feature time on the farm with our furry friends, arts and crafts, and music to celebrate your child’s special day. Whether you’re shopping in our toy store, participating in one of our programs, or celebrating a birthday, you’ll feel the down home comfort of our “Farm Atmosphere”.

At The Art Farm in The City we acknowledge the unique connection between children and animals. Our programs allow children to interact with live animals and build a bond through a hands-on experience.

Our eco-friendly activity center, conveniently located in New York City, features an indoor petting zoo. Our educators focus on teaching children about nature, animals, and how to better care for our planet. Our programs are fit for kids from toddlers to children age 8. Children as young as 14 months can enroll in "adult and me" classes, we offer Laurie Berkner's The Music in Me, and Rock, Smocks, and Animals. These classes feature music and animals! Join us for any of our drop-in programs like Play Time where you and your child can visit the animals, have fun in our playroom, and create a piece of art together.

You can stop by on the weekend for Mornings on the Farm to feed our animals, or enjoy our Farm Foodies cooking class and see little chefs explore their culinary skills with farm fresh fruits and vegetables. We also offer Play Groups for children age two, Preschool for two’s and three’s, and Animal Care classes for children ages 4-8. The Art Farm also offers Homeschool Classes where each week children ages 5-8 will take an in-depth look into animal habitats and animal classification.  Sign-up for any of our holiday or seasonal camps for children up to 8 years old to enjoy. You can even host your child’s birthday party at The Art Farm!
