There's a 1.5 mile hiking trail that loops the property, along with a variety of smaller off-shoot trails, where you'll see all types of flora and fauna native to the Appalachian region. We collect even more food from the forest, including walnuts, pecans, paw-paws, mulberries, huckleberries, blackberries, and an array of wild edibles including chanterelle mushrooms as well as golden oyster and shiitake mushrooms from our inoculated logs. We even have a rare, un-blighted American Chestnut hugging the main trail.
Our forest is a registered Tree Farm in the Forest Stewardship Program and we are also enrolled in the National Resource Conservation Service's Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program. Our goals with this program are to promote native wildlife, improve the productivity of hardwoods, remove invasive plant species, and enhance recreational enjoyment.
