Guess the weights of the Howell Farm hogs as they step onto the scales for their summer weigh-in! Visitors will learn the finer points of keeping pigs, including their history, diet, and some fun facts. Next they’ll guess their weight, grind corn, mix feed, fill the wallow, and slop the hogs!
Learning and Fun on the Farm!
Preschool Fridays on the Farm are designed for preschool through early elementary-aged children (though older siblings are welcome too). Program participants will engage in the same activities as children living on a 1900s farm, while learning what “Share the Harvest” means at Howell Farm today.
On-Site and Virtual Field Trips
Howell Farm's hands-on field trips are designed for schools and families, bringing students of all ages through the fields, woods and barns of a real working farm. Along the way, they learn about the history, technology, and science of farming in the past and in the present. Learn more about this season's programs below!
