Enhancement and Restoration of Critical Habitat
At Sleepy Hollow we strive for the minimal use of chemicals--herbacides and fertilizers--and hope to be able to control pests through mechanical means and the use of biologicals. For example, using Lady bugs to help control aphids on the grand firs. The side effects of pesticide use to control Aphids can severely effect pollinators. We believe in the use of farm practices that minimize impacts on the soil, while maintaining habitat for wildlife and native flora and fauna. One of our larger interests is restoring the oak savannah and other forest habitat on the property.
