The beginning of fall means back to school, a new sports season, colorful foliage…and Ambler Farm Day on the horizon!

Wilton’s Ambler Farm will hold its signature event, the 16th Annual Ambler Farm Day on Sunday, Sept. 25, from 12–4 p.m.. The annual fall tradition has grown into a favorite for thousands of people in the Fairfield County region, and families from Wilton and beyond are once again invited to enjoy the apple slingshot, visit with farm animals, build make-your-own-scarecrow, take hay rides, cheer the trebuchet (aka “punkin’ chucker”), create children’s crafts, pick from the pumpkin patch, listen to live music, taste delicious homemade apple pies and baked goods and so much more.

The cost is $20 per family upon entrance to the event. (More information about the day is available on the Ambler Farm website.)

With a little more than two weeks of preparation to go, the Ambler Farm Day Committee members are asking for used clothes donations for the Make-Your-Own-Scarecrow activity. This popular activity relies on the generosity of donations to make it such a success. Clothing donations can be dropped off in the bins outside the White Carriage Barn at Ambler Farm.

Ambler Farm Day isn’t possible without many volunteers to help. Event organizers need help from residents willing to volunteer in order to make sure the event is successful. The most crucial need is for people to be general volunteers on the day of the event. Anyone interested in volunteering for Ambler Farm Day can contact Ambler Farm executive director Robin Clune via email.
