Hands-on Learning Experiences 

Educational Programs at Howell Farm

Howell Farm’s educational programs engage students, families, and community groups in the real, seasonal activities of a working farm. Hands-on learning experiences provide the answers to essential questions posed by the New Jersey and Pennsylvania State Standards for Social Studies, Language Arts, Science and the Next Generation Science Standards. The farm’s classic, mixed crop and livestock operations accurately portray the era of pre-tractor systems, creating a unique and inspiring learning environment where history, technology, science converge...and where past and present meet.
