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!
With the hives open and the bees on their best behavior, the Howell Farm beekeeper invites visitors to look inside the supers and meet the workers, drones, and the queen herself! Next, you can help uncap and extract this year’s crop of clover honey from the combs, then have a taste and bottle some to take home.
