Howell Living History Farm Now Accepting Applications for Fall Preschool Program, The Hatchery

HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP, N.J.—Howell Living History Farm is accepting applications for parent/child enrollment in its fall pre-school program, The Hatchery, which begins in September. Parents can enroll by attending an organizational meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 23, or Tuesday, Aug. 29, at 1 p.m. Meetings will be held in the Howell Farm Visitor Center, and are intended for parents only. Applications will not be accepted by mail or phone.

 

The program is designed to introduce children to life on the farm, while parents help the Howell Farm staff with visiting school groups and other farm activities.  One parent must help at the farm as a volunteer in exchange for one child’s participation in the program. No experience is necessary.

 

The Hatchery program is for children ages 3 to 5 years and features activities such as feeding farm animals, collecting eggs, storytelling and taking a hayride. The program runs from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. one morning per week for 12 weeks, on Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays, beginning Sept. 13, 14 or 15. 

           

Howell Farm is owned by the County of Mercer and maintained by the Mercer County Park Commission. It is located on Valley Road, just off Route 29, in Hopewell Township. The GPS address is 70 Woodens Lane, Hopewell Township, NJ 08530.  Parking and admission are free.

 

For more information, call the farm office at (609) 737-3299, or visit www.howellfarm.org or www.mercercountyparks.org.
