Baby Animal Day at Suffolk County Farm and Education Center

Yaphank, NY – On Saturday May 13, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker joined over 3,000 residents at the Suffolk County Farm and Education Center in Yaphank. The event, hosted by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County (CCE Suffolk), included wagon rides, music, food vendors, hands-on farm animal interaction, model airplane demonstrations, book readings and children’s games and activities.

The Suffolk County Farm is a working farm in Yaphank that has been in operation since 1870. Managed by Cornell Cooperative Extension Suffolk since 1974, the location serves as a bridge between the organization's programs and Suffolk’s agricultural heritage. The farm is open year round and offers many programs and resources for residents including education programs, gardening information, marine research, summer camps, nutrition programs and more.

"Baby Animal Day is a favorite amongst the events offered at the Suffolk County Farm, bringing Long Island families outside to enjoy the warm weather and interact with our animals,” said Vanessa Lockel, Executive Director of CCE Suffolk. "Our organization is grateful to Legislator Anker for attending Baby Animal Day and showing support for the Suffolk County Farm and our programs."

Established in 1917, CCE Suffolk is a non-profit community education agency that works to preserve the county’s agricultural resources, marine life, protect our eco-systems, support families, provide community service opportunities for youth, and advance research-based education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

Affiliated with Cornell University as part of the national land grant university system, CCE Suffolk’s staff consists of educators, researchers, specialists, and support personnel who are dedicated to making Suffolk County a desirable place to live and work.

CCE Suffolk is a subordinate governmental agency with an educational mission that operates under an organizational model approved by Cornell University as agent for the State of New York.
