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.

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. Sign up for our weekly farm stand email listing what will be available, or “Like” us on Facebook for regular posts.

Thanksgiving Centerpiece Workshop with Melinda Wolcott

Sunday, November 23rd, 2-3:30pm
Cost: $35 members/ $40 non-members

Maximum # of attendees: 12

Melinda Wolcott, talented floral designer, judge and highly regarded Wilton Garden Club member, will walk participants through each step as they create a beautiful arrangement which can be used for Thanksgiving, just four days later. The design will look like a turkey, in a low no-handle basket, with lemon leaves around the base, a bird of paradise flower for the head, mums for the breast, solidago (goldenrod) and pheasant feathers for the tail and wings and an ornamental cabbage for the part that went over the fence last!

Register online.

Registration will open to members on October 17th. Registration for non-members, space permitting, opens on November 1st. Don’t miss out!
