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!
Learn how to make hay the old-fashioned way, and enjoy a free hayride around the farm. Rides leave the barnyard every 20 minutes from 10:30 – 3:00, and take visitors up to the fields where farmers are cutting, tedding, and raking loose hay to store in the barn for the horses. Climb aboard and join the fun!
