The Art Farm in the City

Up on the Upper East Side, there’s a hidden pastoral gem where tots can forge a connection with the land: The Art Farm in the City. This cool nature-focused center offers a break from the hustle and bustle of the city with eco-friendly classes, playgroups, birthday parties and camp that your whole family will seriously dig into.

Home to New York City’s only indoor petting zoo, The Art Farm is a unique space with animals from bearded dragons to chinchillas. Its earthy vibe serves as a cornerstone for Art Farm’s curriculum. Little chefs use pint-sized tools to cook farm-fresh, organic foods. Budding musicians and their rock-star parents can boogie their way through classes like Rocks, Smocks, and Animals, a critter-focused music and arts program.

Activities are sorted by age, so that itty bitties can adjust to gaining newfound independence through their gentle separation program, while older tots get to go on field trips. Little drop-in visitors can play and sow their way from art projects to story time. And for kids who don’t want to leave, Art Farm birthday parties are a total crowd-pleaser.
In the middle of the concrete jungle, The Art Farm offers the benefits of hands-on education… and hands-off clean up after all of those critters.
