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!
Farmers invite you to join local 4-H club members as they demonstrate methods for handling, grooming and milking dairy goats. Learn about cow breeds, milk and cream production, history, and more! In the farmhouse, you can also help make cheese and butter, before churning and tasting a batch of old-fashioned ice cream.
