Welcome Home to Ambler Farm

First time visitors and returning friends – welcome!

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.

Tap-a-Tree Maple Syrup Program

Training Sessions:  Saturday, February 4th at 10am or 1pm
Learn the science and history of maple syruping by being a hands-on part of the process. There will be two training sessions offered (February 4th at 10am or 1pm); only ONE session is required for training. On that day you will choose a tree and hang your bucket that will collect sap. We will send regular updates on the running of the sap so you can come to the Farm to collect sap from your tree. Sap will be boiled down in our sugar shack and each family will go home with their very own bottle of Ambler Farm maple syrup. Enrollment limited.
$60 per member family, $65 per non-member family. Registration begins for members January 3rd, and opens to non-members on January 17th (space permitting).

Summer Program: Adventures at the Farm

Weeks of June 19th through August 7th, 2017
9:00am – 1:00pm
This unique farm program provides an opportunity for students to experience farm life. Students will not only learn about the plants in our educational gardens but have opportunities to work in the gardens; spending time with our sheep and goats is a favorite activity as well as checking to see if our chickens have laid eggs. Baby chicks, rabbits and visiting animals provide engaging opportunities for kids to interact and learn. Each week includes woodworking, hayrides, planting, harvesting, hands on projects, animals, cooking and more! Students are divided by grade levels for appropriate activities, which will change each week for variety. Registration Forms will be available beginning January 26th.

School field trips now available for preschool and school-aged children

Topics can be tailored to meet the needs of your curriculum. In general, a trip consists of a 1.25 to 1.5 hours program which includes visiting our farm animals to learn about their adaptations, hayride, and a farming experience in our gardens which will vary depending on the produce available. The garden portion includes sampling of produce, parts of a plant and plant adaptations.  Cost of the trip is $10 per child.

Please contact Jen Grass at jennifer@amblerfarm.org to arrange your visit.
