Fox Chase Farm

 
Ever long for a temporary break from city life? Guess what? You can experience one of the last working farms in any major city by visiting Fox Chase Farm. Remarkably, this land has produced agriculture for over 300 years!
Fox Chase Farm is located in Northeast Philadelphia on Pine Road, 1 mile north of Rhawn Street.
Be sure to check out Fox Chase Farm's other activities!
  • We offer Saturday morning open houses, astronomy night, storytelling, bird walks and hayrides. Come experience Maple Sugar Day, Sheep Shearing or Apple Fest too.
  • Children and adults are invited to explore the best of farm life. Resident cattle, sheep, pigs, chickens and even hayfields and a barn help you learn more about agriculture and farming.
  • The School District of Philadelphia and Parks & Recreation cooperatively operate Fox Chase Farm as an agricultural education facility. Programs include an active 4-H club and many visits by school children throughout the region.
  • Maple Sugar Day at the Fox Chase Farm was a huge success with many visitors learning the process of maple sugaring, maple candy making and sampling pancakes with pure maple sugar.
Fox Chase Farm has also appeared in Pennsylvania Recreation & Parks magazine.
