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!
Celebrate the holidays by taking a scenic, horse-drawn hayride through the heart of Pleasant Valley, passing fields of harvested corn and newly-sprouted winter wheat—and crossing the fords of Dry Run Creek. The rides are free, and visitors are invited to lend support to the farm's community outreach programs by bringing canned goods for donation to area food banks and soup kitchens. At the visitor center, the Friends of Howell Farm will hold their annual Wreath & Sleighbell Sale, featuring straps of bells made by the farm's harnessmaker.
