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!

Evening Hayrides    

Saturday, July 11,18 & 25    5:00am–8:00pm

Enjoy an old-fashioned wagon ride along lanes bordered by snake fences and fields where swallows and mockingbirds are making their evening rounds. On the front lawn of the farmhouse, roast marshmallows, toss bean bags, and catch a firefly if you can! 

If you miss the first day, or want to see how much taller the corn has grown, here’s your chance! The evening hayride program offered on July 11 is repeated on each of the following two Saturdays. On July 18 member of the New Jersey Storytellers’ Network will add to the fun by telling farm-related tales during the program. 

The farm is closed during the day on all three dates.
