In 2016, we at the Horn Farm Center were thrilled to achieve two of our dreams when the County of York (from whom the Horn Farm Center leases the property) agreed to extend the terms of our lease to 99 years and placed the 186-acre Horn Farm property in a farmland preservation program.
Looking to the future, we began a woodland restoration project in a 6 acre woodland/stream corridor adjacent to the fields of our Farm Business Incubator. In its first six months, the project has provided hands-on experience for more than 100 volunteers who have learned ways to re-engage with the land in mutually beneficial ways.
The project is designed to provide ecological, economic, and educational yields. The replacement of overly abundant vining species with a greater diversity of useful plant species will provide food, fiber, fodder, fuel, and medicinals while restoring ecosystem biohabitats, biodiversity, and resilience.
