Participant Farm featured for Solar Watering System

East of Huson Farm, Hemlock Hill, featured in “Solar-Powered Watering Systems” article in ACRES USA Magazine showcasing their solar watering system installed by WAC.

“Installing   solar-powered   watering  systems  has  benefits  in  addition to reducing your farm’s carbon footprint  —  it  can  also  provide  access to out-of-reach sources of water and protect local water systems.

Hemlock  Hill  Farm,  in  Cortlandt  Manor,  New  York,  is  among the   oldest   family-owned   working  farms  in  Westchester County.

Eighty-two-year-old John DeMaria works   the   farm   alongside   his  daughter, Laura. In  2010,  a  solar-powered  watering  system  became  a  new  feature on  their  farm,  thanks  to  the  collaborative  efforts  of  John  and  Carrie  Davis,  the  agricultural  program coordinator   with   the   Watershed Agricultural  Council  (WAC).” -Acres USA, April 2015
