For its fifth year, Muscoot Farm celebrates Groundhog Day with a twist of relying on one of its very own farm animals to predict the weather in a way that mirrors Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil.
Westchester County Executive George Latimer said, “Muscoot Farm has put Westchester County on the map of highly anticipated Groundhog Day celebrations across the state and this tradition is a fun way for residents to acknowledge the day.”
Westchester County Parks Commissioner Kathy O’Connor said, “Year after year, Muscoot Farm has built up the excitement of Groundhog Day by putting Cluxatawney Henrietta in the spotlight and I’m thrilled that Westchester County Parks has its own weather-predicting chicken!”
Muscoot Farm Manager Jonathon Benjamin said, “Muscoot Farm loves an homage to any animal and groundhogs are no exception. Since we don’t have a groundhog at the farm, Cluxatawney Henrietta has accepted the challenge of being our resident weather-predicting animal.”
