Howell Living History Farm is always a wonderful place to visit. Located in Lambertville NJ, it is fairly easy to get to (just make sure you use their address from their website: 70 Wooden’s Lane, Lambertville, New Jersey instead of the mailing address that sometimes comes up when you search for them online!).
Here is their WEBSITE with information.
We try to make it there annually and every time we come to a new surprise, with new experiences waiting for us.
Last time we came on a weekday and the farm was pretty empty of visitors. I was there with a good friend, and we had six kids all together. With some very friendly volunteers our kids got to pick carrots from the ground, feed them to the cow, pet a really friendly cat, run with fun chickens, pump some water for the horse, and much more. We also met a whole bunch of interesting insects. On the way out we got a surprise: they found a turtle!! While driving home we also saw a dead deer being eaten by vultures. While it sounds icky, it was actually a really cool thing to see.
A great thing about Howell Living History Farm is that general visit is free, though we do make up for it in their gift shop. Also they have a lot of different wonderful programs for kids to sign up for on the weekends. Even when you come when there isn’t anything exciting happening, there is always someone there to show you around and answer all the questions your kids come up with. It is a great family destination!!
As always here are some of the wonderful photos we took over the years:
