The entire family is invited to French Farm, where art meets nature in a truly unique private, historic landscape. Children can get up close and personal with the farm's animals; enjoy games, nature crafts and a scavenger hunt; press cider and explore the fossil garden and pterodactyl tower. Adults can take a horticultural tour of the property led by noted landscape designer Florence Boogaerts or learn about the property's cultural landscape, collections and development in a tour led by Jacek Nidzgorski, the farm's long-standing resident. Artists are invited to set up their easels during the event, and visitors are free to snap photos for personal enjoyment. (Permission to publish photos must be obtained by the Friends of French Farm.) A finger-food buffet will include tea sandwiches and sweet and savory pastries by celebrity chef John Barricelli of The SoNo Baking Company. Live music.
