The Friends of Ambler Farm have made it the farm’s mission to celebrate Wilton’s agrarian roots through active-learning programs, sustainable agriculture, responsible land stewardship, and historic preservation. Ambler Farm Day is an important fundraiser which helps sustain educational programming. Be sure to ask about upcoming educational programs and events. There’s always something wonderful and new on their calendar.
