First time visitors and returning Friends of Ambler Farm alike—welcome! While we hope you’ll visit us in person, click around to get a virtual sense of this 200 year-old working farm dedicated to celebrating our community’s agrarian roots through hands-on learning programs, sustainable agriculture, responsible land stewardship, and historic preservation. Year-round activities, community events, and educational programs for all ages are but a few of the many opportunities for fun and discovery at Ambler Farm.
So come ‘home’ to Ambler Farm and roam our 18 acres of organic vegetable and flower gardens, meadows, seasonal farm stand, farm animals, and the soon-to-be-restored Raymond-Ambler Farmhouse. Ambler Farm is a place to connect – to the land, to our history, to our families. Open from dawn to dusk 365 days/year. Ambler Farm is your farm.
Our Seasonal Farm Stand is Now Open Every Saturday!
Saturdays from 9am – 2pm
Our weekly farm stand is open for the season. Every week you’ll have your pick from produce crops that were started as organic seedlings in our greenhouse by Farmer Jonathan. The farm stand runs through October, weather and crop-permitting. Also, come visit us at the weekly Wilton Farmer’s Market every Wednesday outside the Wilton Historical Society at 224 Danbury Road. Sign up for our weekly farm stand email listing what will be available, or “Like” us on Facebook for regular posts.

NEW! Farm to Kitchen Summer Program

9:15am – 1:15pm
For students entering grades 8-11
This exciting program provides students with a unique farm-to-fork opportunity to work side by side with farmer Jonathan Kirschner and master chef and Middlebrook School culinary arts teacher (and winner of The Food Network’s “Chopped”) Heather Priest, learning to grow and cook freshly-harvested foods. Each day, students will work in our production garden and then use the harvested foods in a culinary experience. In addition to helping grow what they eat and developing their cooking skills, students will help run the Ambler Farm booth at the Wilton Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays.
Fee: $330/student per week.
Tomato Tasting + Family Fun
August 17th at 1pm
Enjoy an epicurean afternoon at Ambler Farm while tasting and learning about a variety of fresh heirloom, hybrid and “garden variety” tomatoes. Since our production garden is only so big, we can’t grow every variety that we sell as seedlings, so if you bought any varieties, please bring a few from your garden (with accompanying labels) to share for tasting.
We will have a tomato cooking and recipe demonstration, lawn games including horseshoes, corn hole, tomato-on-a-spoon race and more! We will also provide information on how to can your own tomatoes.
BYO picnic and blankets or chairs.
Please register online with payment to be collected at the check-in table. Walk-ins welcome. Rain or Shine.
$15 per family OR free if you bring 3-5 organic tomatoes or a simple prepared tomato-based dish for tasting. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
