Help Us Win An Entire Fruit Orchard

Good News!  The Friends of Hilltop Hanover Farm were chosen as one of the finalists in the Communities Take Root Program.  17 out of 100 worthy community groups will win an Entire Fruit Orchard—and we want to be one of them!  Apples, pears, raspberries, nuts, currants and so many more delicious options—and you can help us choose.

Unlike the presidential elections, we need you to vote often—once a day.  All it takes is one vote per day from you and everyone you know from now until August 29.

The Friends of HHF is a non- profit whose mission is to serve the Westchester Community by expanding on the success of the Farm as a regional education center that offers sustainably grown food and teaches small-scale suburban and urban farming techniques.  We are absolutely unique in Westchester.   The Farm offers educational classes, demonstration projects, a farm stand, a U-Pick vegetable operation and a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program.  We already grow the vegetables, and now we  have a chance to get the fruit!
