First time visitors and returning friends – welcome! Ambler Farm is a place where “good things grow.” Here, we celebrate our community’s farming heritage through hands-on learning programs, sustainable agricultural practices and an appreciation of our rich history. Owned by the Town of Wilton, the 200-year-old farm hosts year-round events and educational programs for all ages. Our most popular include maple syruping, cooking classes, a summer program for kids and Ambler Farm Day.
So come ‘home’ to Ambler Farm! Roam our organic gardens and meadows. Visit our seasonal farm stand and our animals. Picnic with your family and check out our historic buildings. Open from dawn to dusk 365 days/year.
Ambler Farm is your farm.
