The Howell Living History Farm in Lambertville New Jersey is a fantastic example of serious dedication to the restoration and preservation of a past way of life. The entire operation shows what an American farm in this part of the country would have been like from 1890 to 1910.

Howell Living History Farm Lambertville

We talk with local farmers practicing the art of plowing with three horses at once.

They whistle quietly and walk behind the animals as they trudge through thick green pasture turning it over and revealing the rich earth beneath. Soon they will plant corn here.

We have the place to ourselves and wander around for hours unescorted and nearly alone except for the animals. A goose chases Kelly and we flee laughing and squealing past the pigs towards the plowing teams up ahead.
