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 in Hopewell.

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

Making Honey At Delicious Orchards

Honeybees


Remember Delicious Orchards?

 

I wrote about them in 2012. It is a wonderful gourmet country food market where you can get delicious produce, doughnuts, etc. 

 

They also make their own honey right inside the store. 

 

The bees come through a tube in the wall and go into a “beehive” and produce fresh honey.
