How NPF Members can enjoy the property and trails

Please leave your dogs at home!

Our pastures and 2.5 miles of woodland trails are available to NPF members for hiking, picnicking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing from dawn to dusk.

  • Please do not feed our animals, they are on strict healthful diets!
  • Do not touch the electric fences! These wires crisscross our pastures from April thru November and they protect our cows and sheep as they graze.
  • Please respect all of our teaching sites and gardens
  • Please do not enter any fenced in areas
  • For your own safety, when hiking through our woodlands, please stay on the marked trails.
  • Remember to leave a message on our machine, (203) 938-2117, letting us know you are coming.
  • Children must be accompanied by an adult
  • Enjoy the property at your own risk.

Parking

We ask that you park in the paved lot by the Learning Center and make your way out onto the property.
Please do not drive down our farm road.

Sledding

NPF members and their families may also go sledding and tobogganing on astronomy hill at their own risk.

NO Skating

Our pond never freezes predictably so we are sorry to say, “NO SKATING!”

Skiing and Snowshoeing

The pastures are a great place for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. We do not allow skiing in the woodlands.
