Howell Farm is currently closed to the public, and all scheduled programs are canceled until further notice. Hiking, biking, or horseback riding through the farm, its lanes, or on Hunter Road is prohibited.
Because we are a working farm, essential full-time staff will remain on site to ensure that animals, grounds, and crops are cared for without interruption. Our horses, sheep, chickens, barn cat, and farm dog Lucy are all being fed and let in and out on their regular schedule.
Please check our website and Facebook page for updates and announcements, as well as mercercountyparks.org for information about other park closures due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
