Arcadia Farm is a 30-acre, 44-stall horse training and boarding facility in Huntersville. Trainers and owners Molly Flaherty and Patricia Peckham have worked together at Arcadia Farm since 1987. Both are licensed USEF hunter and hunt seat equitation judges. They offer a complete course of instruction for children and those interested in beginning to ride.
THE BAPTIST CHURCH
Now home to the Community Church of Yorktown, the church on Baptist Church Road traces its roots back to 1785. The present structure was built in 1848 and is a Historic Landmark. The cemetery has many headstones dating back to the early 1700's, some marking the resting places of the original tenant farmers who worked the land and constructed the antique houses still standing in Huntersville.
Once home to sheep, chickens, cows and goats, Faraway Farm is now an alpaca farm run by Huntersville natives Leda Blumberg and her husband, Steve Cole. Featured on the Martha Stewart Show and in many different publications, the farm breeds and raises award-winning alpacas. They also sell beautiful handmade alpaca products, which are available both on-site and online.
HEMLOCK BROOK PRESERVE
The Westchester Land Trust's Hemlock Brook Preserve on Baptist Church Road is small but stunning. Just 14 acres, the preserve features a deep, hemlock-lined ravine with a stream rushing through it. The loop trail runs downhill and comes to an old stone fireplace and wooden bench above the stream before heading up to the top of the hill. The preserve was created in 1971 thanks to the donation of the land by longtime Huntersville resident Walter P. Lewisohn. Lewisohn also takes credit for creating the sublime "mill house" located at the head of the trail.
HEMLOCK HILL FARM
Located just outside of Huntersville, Hemlock Hill Farm is one of Westchester's oldest family-run farms and is a great source for local produce, dairy, and poultry. The farm supplies a number of area restaurants and sells to the public at its on site store. You can't get much more farm to table than this.
HUNTER BROOK PRESERVE
Run by the Westchester Land Trust, the 45 acre Hunter Brook Preserve runs along the Hunter Brook stream, a tributary of the Croton Reservoir. Trails run alongside the stream and through the surrounding wetlands, scrubs, and forest. Located on Beekman Court, off of Hunterbrook Road, the preserve offers a pleasant walk through lovely terrain.
