Coronavirus Information

October 9, 2020

Dear Friends,

First, we hope you and your families are safe and well. With the cool hint of autumn in the air, it’s a wonderful time to visit with old friends and meet new families who are finding the farm for the first time.

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.

Ambler Farm remains open to the public, dawn to dusk, as an open space for walking. 

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.

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.

Our Farm Stand will be open on Saturdays from 9:00 AM-2:00 PM through the end of October. We have taken several precautions to ensure your safety. We have created a wider, more open shopping space this year, complete with one-way aisles and a separate entrance and exit. Masks are required.

We have wonderful community-focused events coming up this harvest season. Come out to the farm to enjoy live music with our Drive-in Music Concert on October 17th, and check out our scarecrow-making events on October 24th and 31st.

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 autumn.

Please take care,

Your Friends at Ambler Farm
