Do not climb trees. Do not sit, climb, stand or run on historic stone walls or stacked wood walls or piles.

All buildings at Ambler Farm are closed to visitors unless open for a specific event or function. The Yellow House is a private residence—please do not enter the yard or driveway.
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.

Dogs are also not allowed inside the farm stand, sugar shack or transplant sale area. Dogs are not allowed inside the buildings at any time. This is for the safety and health of our volunteers and staff, as well as visitors and those who purchase our produce. As this is Town owned property, we are subject to following town rules. Dogs are expected to be under the direct control of the owner at all times. If your dog is seen off leash and not under your direct control, we will request that you leash your dog. Many people, especially children, are frightened by dogs, even small ones, or they may be allergic. Please be courteous of others.

Children must be supervised at all times. Stay off all farm equipment including and not limited to tractors, mowers and trailers.
