News From the Farm

Hawthorne Valley Farm Plants 350-foot Hedgerow Featuring…Hawthorne!

Hawthorne Valley Farm Plants 350-foot Hedgerow Featuring…Hawthorne!

The new hedge will further support the farm’s biodiversity, providing blossoms for pollinators, berries for birds, and nuts for wildlife, as well as shelter for creatures great and small. Eventually, it will also provide food for the farm’s pigs. The growing hedge will visually divide a large field, adding aesthetic interest, and making the walk along one of the farm’s main arteries more noteworthy and beautiful.
