Queens Farm Haunted House, Durckey, and Corn Maze Oct. 31

Posted on October 27, 2008. Filed under: Entertainment, Off the beaten path |

 We thought we were out to see some fall foliage, instead a new species was discovered. Sipping on hot apple cider and witnessing the greatest miracle on earth- a “durckey”- that’s what happens when a duck gets fresh with a turkey, an unlikely hybrid in animal kingdom. At least, that was the educated guess- noticing the webbed feet and duckbill on this bird, what threw us off was the red turkey like crown… one can only imagine. Note: After doing a little research, it looks like this is an actual breed of a muscovy duck from Mexico. Although, the prefered name by Local718 is still the durckey.

There’s only one more day to head to Queens Farm for the corn maze, haunted house, hot apple cider, and hay rides. Dress up the kids or take your friends Friday October 31st for a fun filled and inexpensive afternoon 4pm-7pm. See farm animals, peruse the pumpkin patch and mingle with the locals. This is great fun for all ages. A subway ride on the E to Union Turnpike/Kew Gardens in Queens will get you to the Q46- which is about a 20 minute bus ride to the sub-urban farm and museum.
