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!
Farmer Jim and his crew will use a "hit and miss" engine to churn gallons of ice cream in the shade of a maple tree...while live music by the Jugtown Mountain String Band, kids’ games, and farmhouse tours add to the fun on the front lawn. Ice cream, surrey rides, and a children's craft are available for purchase.
Behind the farmhouse, local artists’ paintings will be on display along the kitchen garden fence, and sold throughout the day.
