News

The Family Animal Show, presented by Jason of Green Meadows Farm, recently visited the Floral Park Public Library on Wednesday, July 23, with a show and fun for the whole family on the library’s front lawn. Green Meadows Petting Farm offers children and adults a hands-on touching experience with the farm’s animals.

The farm provides a hands-on program that features reptiles, frogs, bugs, fluffy chickens, baby farm animals, bunnies and hedge hogs. The animals can be safely touched and are displayed in colorful “petting boxes.”

Email: info@visitgreenmeadowsfarm.com or call 631-286-0680 to schedule a visit or for more information about Green Meadows Farm.

The daytime and evening groups, of Made With Love, made up of more than 20 knitters, have been meeting for more than four years at the Floral Park Library to make items for local community members and organizations in need. The group has recently donated to Wounded Warriors, INN of Hempstead, local nursing homes, Liz’s Day, Special Olympics, Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, Birthright, Lutheran Family Services and St. Joseph’s of Seattle. The group has donated knitted hats and scarves to the preemies, cancer, and heart patients at Winthrop Hospital and St. Baldrick’s.
