Farm Museum takes a trip back in time

November 6, 2013 by  

Queens County Farm Museum will host the Eighteenth-Century Tavern Nights dinner this weekend, which will no doubt draw attendees from neighboring communities such as Farmdale and Bellerose.

The dinner will be prepared in authentic 18th Century style, including an open hearth and tableware from the period. Hosted in a 1770s setting, the menu will consist of traditional recipes of the era.

The Queens County Farm Museum occupies the city’s largest undeveloped farmland and is the biggest remaining today. It includes 47 acres complete with a greenhouse, livestock, planting fields, an herb garden, and an orchard. It is also the only working farm from a historical period in the city.

In addition to the dinner, many activities are held at the farm throughout the year, including festivals, bounce houses, pony rides, workshops, haunted houses, corn mazes, arts and crafts, and other outdoor adventures.

Brochure printers frequently work with various entities in providing the marketing brochures for events like this, which can then be distributed either manually or as part of a promotional package. A qualified print company will be able to assist in the design and production of printing such promotional items.

Reservations are required for the Eighteenth-Century Tavern Nights dinner, which will be held this Friday and Saturday from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. Suitable for anyone over the age of 12, the price is $85 per person and places can be booked via the event’s website. For more information, call 718-347-3276.
