HALLOCKVILLE MUSEUM FARM’S VIRTUAL SUSTAINABILITY TRAIL

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. 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. “Members” of the Hallock family, which had the property in its name from at least 1801 until 1979, will be heard talking about how the farm operated, with details about such things as how they recycled gray water, fed garbage to pigs and used their rainwater capture system.

We would not have been able to undertake a project like this without the help of the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation. Hallockville Museum Farm graciously thanks the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation for their continuing support of Hallockville’s mission: To take Long Island back to its family farming roots and explore their relevance today.
