The farm pond at the Frohloff Farm once watered the cattle, horses and other livestock on the property.
For the past two growing seasons the vegetation – buckthorn, golden rod or grasses – was allowed to grow after the clearing was completed. Right now, the pond edge is cleared and easily accessible for visitors thanks to Eagle Scout candidate Alex Adamsky and members of Boy Scout Troop 161.
We appreciate all their hard work today – cutting, raking and hauling! They’ve even cleared around the apple and cherry trees near the edge. The ground was loaded with apple drops and huge number of yellow jackets were enjoying to fall food. Fortunately no one got stung!
