Mohegan Lake Legal Defense Fund

History of this site

This site was originally set up to fight 3 of 5 zoning variances proposed by the FBC development at Sagamore Trail and Mohegan Ave that eliminates two single family homes while nearly quadrupling the parking and occupancy loads of the old Lakeland Jewish Center. That effort failed and the application is currently before the Planning Board.

While Save Mohegan Lake will continue to update you on that issue, we are moving on to all issues affecting the lake, such as Mohegan Lake Improvement District (MLID) meetings, agenda and budget. This site is not an official mouthpiece for MLID, but some updates will be provided on this site; the official site is located here.

We do it all here, so long as it's Mohegan Lake related. Feel free to submit comments, content, garage sale notices, police blotters, PSA's, essays on the virtues of our 105 acre ice rink, rants, raves, etc... We love it all.

Bad News

Hemlock Hill had a fire in April.  They lost structures that accommodated chickens, hay and livestock equipment.  Bad news for sure.  Thankfully the Captain Lawrence Brewery has stepped in to do a week long fundraiser, June 17-22,  to raise funds for a barn raising [editor's note: have you ever seen "Witness"? I love Harrison Ford]; there's a Kickstarter Campaign going as well. 

It should be noted that Hemlock Hill actually feeds its pigs and cows used hops from the brewery.  Talk about symbiosis!  Beer and and meet, truly united.

If you can give do.  If you don't already frequent the farm, it's highly recommended.  Oh, and Captain Lawrence is a great local brewery.  How can you not support them.  Have you tried their Sun Block beer. It's a hoppy wheat beer, good with some lemon.  Perfect for these 85 degree days in May.

Hemlock Hill has long been a favorite. read my article on it in the last issue of Valley Table Magazine:
You can also get GREAT MULCH for your garden for cheap. it's rich, dark and full of great minerals that make things grow. they are selling eggs, but from another organic farm. Their chicken coop should be rebuilt soon.

Hemlock Hill Farm is one of the few remaining organic farms in Westchester County. read my article about it in Valley Table Mag:
they are also selling great organic mulch for your garden. I just got some and it's dark,rich, guaranteed to make things grow.
