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.

Fiddlin' on the Farm     

Saturday, August 29   10:00am–4:00pm

Fine fiddlin' will fill the air when some of the area's best musicians bring their talents to the farm during this annual contest sponsored by the Hunterdon Folk Exchange. Now over 30 years old, the contest is the largest and longest-running traditional fiddle contest in New Jersey. The program includes homemade food and ice cream, surrey rides, and a closing performance featuring 30 fiddlers.
