What is Farm Outing Day? 
 
Farm Outing Day is a day-long picnic for MCS families, friends, staff and alumni at the MCS Farm in the Catskills. The day features food, live music, games, hay rides, and fun for the entire family! The day is coordinated and staffed by fifth grade parent volunteers. 
 
How to get there: 
 
By bus: Transportation is available for MCS families. The bus will leave 85th Street at 8 a.m. and leave the MCS Farm at 4 p.m. The ride is about 3 hours long.The cost to ride the bus is $50 per person. Click here to purchase seats on the bus! 
 
By car: Please note cell service is weak up in this part of the Catskills, and often, after exiting I-87 onto Route NY-28 W, GPS loses track. Note these printable directions and keep them handy just in case. They are also helpful when leaving the farm!
 
Food and Refreshments:
 
Pack your own picnic lunch and utensils or purchase an all access food pass ($30 for adults and $15 for children) that will give you unlimited access to pizza from the wood-fired oven, a pig roast, burgers, hot dogs, salads, desserts, non-alcoholic beverages and more - including limited vegetarian options. 
 
Key Info:
  • Pets are not allowed at the MCS Farm.
  • Kids should bring water shoes and towels for playing in the stream.
  • We suggest families bring a picnic blanket, towels, bathing suits and a change of clothes for children.
  • Farm Outing Day is a zero waste event; please bring reusable plates, cups, utensils and water bottles from home to help us reduce waste.
