Hilltop Hanover Farm: the history of the land and the farm
Thursday, October 15, 2015 at 7:30 pm
Hilltop Hanover Farm and Environmental Center is a working crop farm and environmental education facility located in Yorktown Heights, NY. Once part of the Van Cortlandt Manor in the late 1600's, this former dairy farm once hosted a Revolutionary War encampment. The Berolzheimer family, owners of the Eagle Pencil Company, owned the farm in the 1800's. Subsequent owners bred cattle and owned champion race horses at what was then called Chrystal Farm. Westchester County purchased the property in 2003. Today Hilltop Hanover Farm acts a regional education hub offering programs on healthy and sustainable food production, skills for small-scale suburban and urban farmers and sustainable living practices for local communities. Come to the farm and listen to Farm Director and Landscape Architect Lucille Munz talk about the Farm, its history, uses and its potential.
Park at the top of the drive. This program is free and open to the public.
