Goal and Summary
Goal:For Suffolk County and the Town of Huntington to purchase the development rights of this 13.66 acre farm in Western Suffolk County. This would preserve this farm that has been in existence since 1793 and is still a working family farm today. Tilden Lane Farm is on the National Registry of Bicentennial Farms.
This family owned and operated farm grows and sells Christmas trees. The Tilden family's plan for early Spring 2016 is to plant and grow vegetables on the un-farmed acres.
The last weekend in November and the first 2 weekends in December the Tilden Lane Farm is open to the public to sell Christmas trees. Cut your own, precut, wreaths etc.
