Pollinators on the farm

 

Hoch Orchard and Gardens invites you for a meal on the farm. Our event discussion will focus on Pollinators and their role on the farm. The evening will begin with a presentation from Harry Hoch on the role pollinators play and how we provide a healthy habitat for them. After a taste of homemade sweet or hard cider we will take a short walk to the experimental pollinator plot. This plot was designed by the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. There are 22 native wild flowers seeded into this plot.

After a walk we will have dinner in the Packing House.

Tentative menu:

  • Fresh ham from Hoch pastured pork baked with honey glaze
  • New Potatoes
  • Tomato salad
  • Greens
  • Roasted eggplant
  • Cornbread with honey butter

 

After dinner, Dr Borsari will discuss the current status of wild bees, honey bees, and other native pollinators. After Dr Borsari’s presentation we will have a round table discussion with input from all our guests. The topic of discussion will be “what can we do to stop the decline of native pollinators and honey bees”.
