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.
