Howell Living History Farm is a working farm museum located in Mercer County, New Jersey, near the Delaware River. 

The farm shows visitors what farm life was like over 100 years ago. It is a simply wonderful place to take the whole family, and basic admission and parking are free! Some special programs may have a small fee.

There are evening hayrides, "bringing in the sheaves", corn mazes in the fall, wheat threshing, cricket walks, honey harvests and farm animals. Children may also work as farmhands!

The farm is open year-round, but please check the calendar because the farm is closed on certain days, especially on the days of evening hayrides.

If you plan to visit, the farm is technically located on Hunter Lane, Titusville, New Jersey.

The GPS address is 70 Woodens Lane, Lambertville, New Jersey.

Their website is found at Howell Living History Farm.

The is an excellent write-up of this farm on one of my favorite blogs, The History Girl.
