Even though we are closed for the season for inside tours (until late May) you can still walk the grounds, visit the kiosk in the center of the property for information about the farm and use our digital trail to hear history as you walk the grounds during daylight hours.
Walking around Hallockville Museum Farm may be like taking a step back in time, but the experience is now enhanced by futuristic technology.
Thanks to a grant from the Robert D.L. Gardiner Foundation Hallockville, located off Sound Avenue in Riverhead, 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, the sort of black and white patterns found on products in stores. 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.
The museum’s new “Sustainability Trail” is a trip back to a time when sustainable living was truly a way of life.
