According to Love Exploring, Howell Living History Farm in Hopewell Township is a fantastic destination. "This particular area has been farmed since the 1730s, and now a "living history" site celebrates New Jersey's agricultural heritage: still operating by horsepower, it offers an insight into what farming would have looked like from around 1890–1910. It's free to take a self-guided tour of the farm." Hopewell Township is located in Mercer County, New Jersey.
Some quick history according to the farm website "Howell Farm was a working farm for 240 years before its last private owner, Inez Howe Howell of Pennington, donated it to Mercer County in March of 1974. Having grown up on a farm, she wanted others to experience the magic she had always found there, and wrote this letter to the Mercer County Park Commission." Plan a trip today so your family can enjoy living American history, a real farm experience, and some fresh air and sunshine. This might make a fantastic school/group outing.
