Welcome Home to Ambler Farm

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

Ambler Farm Produce

While the Wilton Farmers’ Market and Ambler farm stand are closed for the 2017 season, we wanted to find a way to offer our produce as long as we are still able to harvest it in the field. To that end, we are working with the Village Market in Wilton and Peter’s in Weston to provide our produce for sale. Look for the bags with our label on them in their produce department. Thank you for your continued support of Ambler Farm!

Topics can be tailored to meet the needs of your curriculum. In general, a trip consists of a 1.25 to 1.5 hours program which includes visiting our farm animals to learn about their adaptations, hayride, and a farming experience in our gardens which will vary depending on the produce available. The garden portion includes sampling of produce, parts of a plant and plant adaptations.  Cost of the trip is $10 per child.
