Howell Farm is currently closed to visitors, but the spring work continues! Below you’ll find photo and video updates on corn planting, sheep shearing, and other projects happening around the farm.
We look forward to reopening as soon as possible, but in the meantime please remember that hiking, biking, and horseback riding through the farm—including on Hunter Road—are prohibited.
For the latest information on current park access and future reopenings, please visit mercercountyparks.org. Thanks for checking in – we hope to invite you back soon!
Get out your husking peg...it's time to pick corn! With more than 120,000 ears to pick, farmers could use your hand filling a horse-drawn wagon with field corn—some of which will be used to feed animals in the Mercer County Wildlife Center’s rehabilitation program. Next, head to the barn to help shell and grind corn for Howell Farm’s animals...or the farmhouse to make a batch of cornbread from freshly-ground cornmeal.
