Plant a tree in your area or sponsor the care of one of our trees! See the info at the link below to participate.

Here are Board Members Al and Dayle finishing planting an Emerald City Tulip Tree tree donated by Half Hollow Nursery. It was planted with the help of Bill Lindsay landscaping, and is sponsored by a Hallock family relation to be cared for in memory of Estelle Evans. This tree and two others; a Princeton Sentry Elm and an Adams Crabapple tree are the first of new tree installations to include native trees on our campus.

Celebrate Earth Day on April 22 “Restore the Earth”
Walk our Virtual Sustainability Tour or view it online at https://hallockville.org/sustain-tour to learn how everything on the farm was recycled!

Thanks to a grant from the Robert D.L. Gardiner Foundation Hallockville now offers visitors the chance to follow a high-tech, virtual Sustainability Trail. The trail makes use of informational guideposts that dot the grounds. Each sign is fitted with a QR code. When scanned by a tour taker with a camera app on a smartphone, an audio narration will pop up along with photos or videos — in some cases, both. “Members” of the Hallock family, which had the property in its name from at least 1801 until 1979, will be heard talking about how the farm operated, with details about such things as how they recycled gray water, fed garbage to pigs and used their rainwater capture system.

We would not have been able to undertake a project like this without the help of the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation. Hallockville Museum Farm graciously thanks the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation for their continuing support of Hallockville’s mission: To take Long Island back to its family farming roots and explore their relevance today.

Sustainability, recycling, and conservation are terms used in modern day conversation, but did you know that most farms in the 19th-century were models of sustainable living? The Hallock farm was no exception– virtually everything in the home and on the farm was recycled. reused, or repurposed after initial use. Almost nothing was ever wasted or thrown away, and that’s a lesson for today.

The museum’s new “Sustainability Trail” is a trip back to a time when sustainable living was truly a way of life. Along the way, you will meet Halsey Hallock and his family, the last to live in the old Homestead. They will tell you about the many sustainable practices used over 100 years ago– we hope this journey to the past will help you think about your own lifestyle today and in the future.

Can't wait to share quilts with folks on the east end of Long Island on National Quilting Day, see below! Preserving the Fabrics of Your Life, Quilt and Textile Discovery Day. Sponsored by Hallockville Museum Farm in Cooperation with Suffolk County Museum, Riverhead, NY Date: Saturday, March 16, 2019 Time: 10 A.M. - 1 P.M. Location: Suffolk County Museum, 300 West Main Street Riverhead, NY Fee: $25, General public, $20 Hallockville Members To register: www.hallockville.com/events/ Presenter: Susan J. Jerome, Noted Textile Conservator Preserving the Fabrics in Your Family, Taking Care of Historic Textiles: Quilts, samplers, wedding dresses, linen tablecloths and other textiles are precious heirlooms passed down through your family. Caring for your grandfather’s baby clothes or your great-grandmother’s sampler can be a challenge. Join us on National Quilting Day to learn how to preserve these memories for generations to come. During this presentation we will discuss what to look for when examining old fabric pieces, and the appropriate ways to preserve these textiles. Have you ever wondered: should you wash an old quilt? What about dry cleaning? What’s the best way to store a wedding dress? Can all the spots come out of the tablecloth or should you just live with it? And when should you call in the professional? This program will combine a focused power-point presentation, a bed turning featuring quilts from Susan’s collection, and demonstrations on a few simple preservation techniques to answer many of these questions.
