First time visitors and returning friends – welcome! Ambler Farm is a place where “good things grow.” Here, we celebrate our community’s farming heritage through hands-on learning programs, sustainable agricultural practices and an appreciation of our rich history. Owned by the Town of Wilton, the 200-year-old farm hosts year-round events and educational programs for all ages. 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. Ambler Farm is your farm.
Our Seasonal Farm Stand 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.

Plant a path – brick by brick
To enhance both beauty and safety for our visitors, the Friends of Ambler Farm will install attractive brick walkways at the entrance to the Carriage Barn and leading to the Raymond-Ambler Farmhouse.
We invite you to leave a lasting legacy to our community by purchasing one or more bricks that will carry your personalized message. Engraved bricks will be placed on the walkway in the location of your choice on a first-come, first-served basis.
