Virtual Trail now open!

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.

Sustainability, recycling, and conservation are terms used in modern day conversation, but did you know that most farms in the 19th-century were models of sustainable living? The Hallock farm was no exception– virtually everything in the home and on the farm was recycled. reused, or repurposed after initial use. Almost nothing was ever wasted or thrown away, and that’s a lesson for today.

The museum’s new “Sustainability Trail” is a trip back to a time when sustainable living was truly a way of life. Along the way, you will meet Halsey Hallock and his family, the last to live in the old Homestead. They will tell you about the many sustainable practices used over 100 years ago– we hope this journey to the past will help you think about your own lifestyle today and in the future.

Our Annual Appeal Has Gone out…

2020 TAXES…..DID YOU KNOW?????

The CARES Act provides each individual taxpayer the ability to take an additional deduction of up to $300 in 2020 even if they do not itemize deductions (i.e. take the standard deduction) when filing their return.

The new “universal” deduction, which is only in place for 2020, makes it easier for people to receive a tax benefit for giving to an organization like HALLOCKVILLE MUSEUM FARM.

To qualify for the deduction, the donation must be made in cash (paying by check or credit card is OK) by December 31, 2020.  Stock, volunteer hours or donated goods don’t qualify but are always greatly appreciated at Hallockville. As stated, the donation must be made to a qualified, 501(c)(3) public charity such as HALLOCKVILLE MUSEUM FARM.

Thank you in advance for thinking of HALLOCKVILLE MUSEUM FARM.
