The Tilly Foster Farm Museum was a farm museum in Brewster, New York until December 2013. It was run by The Society for the Preservation of Putnam County until 2014 when the organization gave the management of the farm back to Putnam County Government, which owns the property.
The museum was notable for its rare farm animals including Randall Cattle, donkeys, American rabbits, Pilgrim geese, Indian Runner ducks, and Narragansett turkeys. All of the rare American farm animals have been sold and have vacated the property.
