Spring Flower Photo Walk at Hawthorne Valley Farm
Photography is one of our favorite ways to document our adventures and share our appreciation for nature (for example, in FEP’s Wonder Wanders on Facebook and in the blog Progress of the Seasons Journal). Have you ever wondered how our photographs are made, or wanted to learn how to improve your nature photography? If so, then join Kendrick Fowler for this photo walk! Participants will explore Hawthorne Valley Farm’s woodland trails while learning basic tips and techniques for photographing spring flowers. Special emphasis will be placed on tips for composing images and on tools and techniques for close-up and macro photography. You do not need a fancy camera or any special knowledge to participate—even a camera phone can make an excellent image, and the workshop will include content suitable for people of all skill levels. Note, however, that you will get the most out of the workshop if you already have a basic familiarity with how your camera works, and we recommend that you bring a camera or lens designed to facilitate macro photography.
Participation is limited—if you are interested, please email Kendrick Fowler to register.
This is one of the most beautiful farms – the animals are treated with love and respect. Such an incredible and gorgeous farm. The farm store is clean and there’s such a variety. The food is always organic and delicious. You must visit!
Hands down best grocery store in the area. Excellent selection of local produce and meat as well as bulk foods and natural health/beauty department. Highly recommend!
I’ve been here many times, usually on a day trip to get lunch, and to take in the vibe of the community. The food is always outrageously good and the atmosphere tranquil. There are few places like this, where such cooperative values and commitment to high-quality organic food production are so intrinsically linked. This sort of symbiotic relationship between humanism and the environment is the antidote for corporate America. We need more places like Hawthorne Valley.
Move to Ghent, NY, and live only on Hawthorne Farm Store products
What can we say about this now legendary establishment? It’s *everything* you want in a local fresh healthy food and grocery store. A staple of the area for so long now. Raw milk. Fresh, biodynamically-grown vegetables and fruit. Wonderful baked goods and granolas. Every town in the world should have a store like this! They simply do everything right! We’re so glad HVF is so close to home for us!
Extreme integrity. This store offers some of the best food in the entire world. Beautiful, local biodynamic selection.
Came from Long Island in search of local organic farms and markets. This farm store had the best products. We were in need of raw milk, best hands down! The baked goods were amazing and so delicious. First time we were able to find baked organic goods with minimal ingredients and soy free. The hot food selection was awesome as well. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. The prices were very reasonable. Love this place and will be back soon.
Raw milk, top-notch sauerkraut, cheeses and a full line array of other organic, biodynamic and local products, this is SO much more than your average farm stand! Hawthorne Valley Farm’s flagship products can be found throughout NYC but if you’re ever up this way, it’s worth stopping by to see where the magic happens.
I wish there was an ‘obsessed with’ button!
