July's "Farm Friend" of the month


This farm friend is a bit different this month. I was recently asked why our farm was named Coon Hollow Farm, and am often asked that same question.  The answer is the old tree that sits up on a hill on the farm. Sadly it was a victim of hurricane "Sandy" a few years back. Back when we rehabilitated raccoons on the property, this tree was often the home of many mama raccoons who would raise their young in this tree. It taught us how they fed them, interacted with them and gave us a wonderful view of their natural world. We called this tree "Coon Hollow", so when we became a farm it was easy to name it after this mighty tree that served so well.
