Howell Living History Farm
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 May 2012

My girls (12 and 5) love to visit the farm! This a real working farm run as it would have been in 1890's. They have a terrific summer camp that my oldest loves. This will be her third summer.

We love visiting this farm. So peaceful and there are many opportunities for hands on learning for kids. Check out their calendar for ice fishing, maple syruping, sheep sheering, barn dances, and much more. My son especially enjoys the visit from Santa and helping cutting down the Christmas tree. I love their honey which they have available to sale. The farm itself is free to enjoy and the kids crafts are just a few dollars. The staff is always welcoming and knowledgeable. Lots of animals to visit and the grounds are wonderful to walk. There are even a little creeks to skip rocks right off the paths. They do sell some toys, handmade goods, and food, and their bathroom are always clean. If you have little ones, they have strollers you can use so yu don't get your own stroller dirty.

No cutsie pretenders- just real folks doing real chores-- real lambs in spring crops in summer and fall.

I have been passing by this living history farm my entire life and for some reason never have visited it. Now with my own family I read that they would be having a maple sugaring event in February. Thankfully the weather behaved, albeit windy, and we were able to bundle up and attend. The visitor's center was very pretty, nice eating area, bathrooms were nice and the gift shop was quaint. Throughout the farm, staff were friendly and knowledgable. If the farm was this lovely with all its draft horses in the winter, imagine its beauty when the flowers are in bloom and the trees are full. Children love having wide open spaces to run around in, streams to skip rocks in and then just when they don't think they are learning about what it was like to run a farm around the turn of the century, they are. Admission is free. Some activities throughout the farm cost a nominal fee but goes right to the farm. Activities throughout the year. A great place to visit.
