News & Events


We are getting ready to send our lambs to slaughter at the end of the month. There is still some lamb left over from last January, and we need the freezer space for the new meat. All lamb meat is currently 40% off. Please visit the Visitor Center to purchase.


Saturdays thru Mid-October, 2 pm - 4 pm.

Put on your boots and grab your camera. Join Merck Forest's staff for afternoon farm chores. Peek in the nest boxes to see if you can spot some eggs. Have you ever fed pigs, or given water to sheep? How about haltering and moving horses to pasture? Farm Chores gives families the chance to learn about the farm routine and the animals--it's a great interactive experience. Call to sign up; groups are limited to ten people. Please arrive early to pay, and come dressed in layers and wear boots or old shoes.

Cost: $2.00/person
