“Nice place to spend a few hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

As photographers who live nearby, we find Howell Farm provides great shots in any season. As a grandparent whose 2 grandchildren visit twice a year, it is a fun place to spend a few summer or autumn hours. Before going, visitors should check on what special programs are being offered that day. Fortunately, two years in a row we lucked out because they were playing ragball baseball in the backyard of the farmhouse, so my 11 year old grandson was occupied leaving us to observe the various animals of this working farm at our leisure with my 8 year old granddaughter. There are many other seasonal activities which are related to farm life more than 100 years ago. Everyone who works at Howell, whether paid or volunteer, gets into the spirit of years gone by. There is a newly constructed welcome center equipped with very clean bathrooms. On my last visit they were offering cupcakes and soda for sale. Near the baseball game, hotdogs and popcorn were being roasted on an open fire. On past visits, ice cream was being churned from scratch.

“The Real Deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

My girls (12 and 5) love to visit the farm! This a real working farm run as it would have been in 1890's. They have a terrific summer camp that my oldest loves. This will be her third summer.

“Wonderful Real Working Old Fashioned Farm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

We love visiting this farm. So peaceful and there are many opportunities for hands on learning for kids. Check out their calendar for ice fishing, maple syruping, sheep sheering, barn dances, and much more. My son especially enjoys the visit from Santa and helping cutting down the Christmas tree. I love their honey which they have available to sale. The farm itself is free to enjoy and the kids crafts are just a few dollars. The staff is always welcoming and knowledgeable. Lots of animals to visit and the grounds are wonderful to walk. There are even a little creeks to skip rocks right off the paths. They do sell some toys, handmade goods, and food, and their bathroom are always clean. If you have little ones, they have strollers you can use so yu don't get your own stroller dirty.

No cutsie pretenders- just real folks doing real chores-- real lambs in spring crops in summer and fall.
