All Ages Welcome
Our Open Farm Evenings are designed for kids, adults and families who would benefit from the ability to explore and experience Heckscher Farm outside of a traditional programming environment.
These after-hours farm experiences offer participants the freedom to move throughout the farm at their own pace and in an order of their own design. Small, controlled attendance provides a relaxed, sensory-friendly atmosphere.
Heckscher Farm and our restroom facilities are fully accessible. Staff will be available for questions but will not provide a formal program.
Please register all participants 3 and up for this program. Limited to 30 tickets.
Service dogs are welcome, but we ask that emotional support animals remain at home.
SM&NC Animals for All programs remain free of charge thanks to the support of our generous grantors, the Abilis Community Foundation, Dorr Foundation, and New Canaan Community Foundation.
