Howell Living History Farm makes up 130 acres of farmland in and around Lambertville, New Jersey. Farming began on this site in the 1730s and has evolved from a grain producing farm to a dairy farm over the years. Many animals make up the farm including ox, sheep, pigs, horses, chickens, cats, birds, and Maggie – the overprotective Australian Cattle Dog. This past weekend special programs included a demonstration of the age-old art of herding sheep on an open range by celebrity sheepdog “Sweet” and dog trainer Gene Sheninger. Howell Living History Farm has the longest-running corn maze in New Jersey. The maze includes 4 acres and 2 miles of paths.
