Dear Friends,

Happy New Year! We hope you and your family enjoyed the holiday season!

With the brisk winter season here, it’s still a wonderful time to visit the Farm with old friends and meet new families who are finding the farm for the first time. That being said, we ask you to be diligent, especially in our parking areas. With snow melting and re-freezing, our driveway and parking lots may be slippery and/or icy.

To help us keep our open space available and open to the public while still supporting national and local efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, we need your help. When visiting the farm for a stroll, please observe the latest recommendations regarding social distancing and the wearing of masks at all times. If you choose to gather with friends or meet up as a group at the farm, please adhere to social distance guidelines.

Ambler Farm remains open to the public, dawn to dusk, as an open space for walking.  We are a carry in/carry out property. Please take all trash, including animal waste, with you.

Out of an abundance of caution, we ask that you keep your dog on a leash.  Dogs running on their own create opportunities for close contact, something we are trying to avoid at this time.

Please do not feed or pet our animals. Staff and volunteers need to care for our animals and we ask that their pens, including the locks and latches, and the animals themselves come in as little contact with the public as possible.

All of our buildings, including the carriage barn, are closed until further notice.

We have wonderful community-focused events coming up this winter. Join us in helping our community at our annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. Our Tap-a-Tree Maple Sugaring program is already sold out. Check out our safe Valentine’s Cookie Delivery (in Wilton, pickup for outside Wilton)! And registration for our Summer Camp and Apprentice programs will begin in February.

Consider making a donation to help us continue offering open space and options for our community.

We look forward to seeing you on the Farm this winter.

Please take care,

Your Friends at Ambler Farm
