CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- Town Supervisor Alex Gromack and Council Members Shirley Lasker and Stephanie Hauser announced an agreement with the Rockland Farm Alliance to restore and operate Traphagen in West Nyack.
Plans are for Traphagen to be a replica of an 18th century working farm where families and children can learn about agriculture, New York history, and to learn about healthy and sustainable agriculture while having a good time outdoors.
“We’re so excited to be a part of this revival of farming in Rockland,” John McDowell, Rockland Farm Alliance founder and President said in a statement. “Traphagen Estate is a win for everyone, because it will bring the timeless architectural beauty and agricultural wisdom of our county’s past into a promising new future together. It will be a place where students and families can have fun, learn and be inspired by the balance of the natural world and the sustainable farm.”See Attachment
