Planting and pruning is only finished when the Osage orange hedgerow is ‘horse high and hog tight.’ Help farmers trim these natural fences, and gather fallen oranges for use in the farmhouse basement…where their scent is thought to discourage insects and spiders from taking up residence.
Discover evidence of Pleasant Valley’s historic landscape by joining farmers for hedgerow walks and talks, and learn about a project to map the Osage orange hedgerows of Mercer County. After, enjoy live music performed by the Jugtown Mountain String Band and a bowl of Ice Cream Jim’s famous ice cream.
