Sustainable Forestry at Crown Maple FarmSubmitted by Robb on September 30, 2011 - 7:45pm
Conservation and sustainability. Two terms that get tossed around often enough. But at Crown Maple Farm, we take those words seriously. We’ve preserved more than 800 acres of forested uplands and we’re using sustainable forestry to bring you the purest maple syrup on Earth.
This Saturday, Oct. 1, we’re participating in an event called, “Agribusiness in the Harlem Valley: Conservation in Action,” by hosting a tour of Crown Maple Farm from 9:00-10:00 a.m.
After the tour of the Crown Maple facility, the tour continues at Ashnan Farms from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Ashnan Farms is a biodynamic farm in Wingdale, NY. Biodynamic farming is a holistic and regenerative system focused on soil health, integration of plants and animals, and biodiversity. It seeks to create a farm’s capacity for self-renewal and ultimately makes the farm sustainable.
“Agribusiness in the Harlem Valley: Conservation in Action” is sponsored by Oblong Land Conservancy, a non-profit organization that works with landowners, developers and local government officials to preserve open spaces in Southeast Dutchess County, NY.
If you’re in the area Saturday, stop by – we’d love to see you and show you conservation in action at Crown Maple Farm.
From the Farm provides updates on how the Crown Maple team is turning sap from the some of the most regal maple trees into quite possibly the purest maple syrup on earth. The Crown Maple team shares their insight into maple sugaring, the latest maple syrup production techniques, life in the sugarbush, conserving the land and sustainable forestry. Interested in more?
