Come to the Queens Zoo and meet our barnyard bunch! This year’s Moo at the Zoo event celebrates the season and all things domestic, from our Flemish giant rabbits to our massive Texas Longhorns.

Check out animal keeper chats, cheese making demos, hands-on butter making, a cow milking simulator, farm-themed crafts, and special giveaways from Organic Valley. Also don’t miss the chance to feed a llama, goat, or other corral critter. At Moo at the Zoo you can have a fun-filled day on the farm, right in the middle of Queens!
