This Week: Potato Harvest

Saturday, August 13 | 10:00–4:00 p.m.

Grab a bushel basket and follow behind the potato plow as workhorses Bill and Jesse unearth rows of potatoes for picking! Visitors of all ages can help collect, clean, and sort the crop, which will be delivered to local soup kitchens and food pantries. A few potatoes travel by wheelbarrow up to the barnyard, where farmers wash, slice, and drop them into the kettle to make potato chips for tasting.




Learning and Fun on the Farm!


Preschool Fridays on the Farm are designed for preschool through early elementary-aged children (though older siblings are welcome too). Program participants will engage in the same activities as children living on a 1900s farm, while learning what “Share the Harvest” means at Howell Farm today.

On-Site and Virtual Field Trips  

Howell Farm's hands-on field trips are designed for schools and families, bringing students of all ages through the fields, woods and barns of a real working farm.  Along the way, they learn about the history, technology, and science of farming in the past and in the present. Learn more about this season's programs below!
