Surrounded by verdant rows of Swiss chard, eggplant, garlic, beets, amaranth and mesclun, the Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum seems worlds away from its urban perch on Utica Avenue in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. The farm’s 1.5 acres, wedged between two busy roads, are the stuff that the dreams of idealistic urban planners are made of—a lush, green space readily accessible to an inner-city community. But Wyckoff is no idle fantasy. Its farmhouse, which dates to 1652, may be a monument to a bygone way of life, but the organic produce harvested on its grounds has been a vital resource for the neighborhood since 2003, when the farmers’ market was established. Family-friendly events occur throughout the year, and usually focus on seasonal happenings, like an Apple Festival in September.
