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!
Step inside a working henhouse where the farm's Barred Rock chickens are busy laying and help a farmer make their feed: then reach into a nest box and take out an egg!
Visitors will learn candling and grading, and visit the farmhouse kitchen to learn a recipe to bring home with their egg. A children's craft program, “Decoupage Egg,” will also be offered in the visitor center from 11:00 – 4:00, for a materials fee of $4.
