SyoTube: Do You Remember Lollipop Farm?

This Syosset landmark is long gone, but memories can be found on Youtube.

YouTube isn't just for laughing babies and sneezing pandas! One search can yield dozens of videos about your hometown of Syosset. We'll be bringing one to Patch each week.

This week's clip is called "Lollipop Farm - Syosset, NY," uploaded by MrPacocanela to YouTube.com. Children feed the ducks, ride around a mini-modern train, and learn about Suffolk Sheep at the old farm that was once the main family attraction in Syosset.

Do you remember Lollipop Farm? Did you do any of the things in this clip with your own family? Share your memories in the comments section below!

michelle, if you ever convert the home movies, definitely share them with us! Looks like a lot of our readers have fond memories of Lollipop Farm!

Yes! This is such a wonderful childhood memory. I remember the train, the animals and the rooster who scared me to death when it crowed. I remember the giant tortoise. Thanks for the memory!

I was taken to Lollipop Farm as a kid (I'm from Glen Head, not Syosset). Later my sister was in a production of L'Il Abner in our very theatrical high school, North Shore High. Playing a small but large part was a live pig (Salome, or Salami--get it?) which we kept in our (emptied) swimming pool during the production. Later she found a forever home at Lollipop Farm!
