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
