THURSDAY: Westchester Sketchers at Tilly Foster Farm in Brewster, NY

Joint event co-hosted by Jamie Grossman (LHVPAP) & Cathy Gutterman (Westchester NYC USk)

Since the 19th Century, historic Tilly Foster Farm has served as a beacon for Putnam County’s rich farming heritage, fertile landscapes, and natural beauty.   In the 2000s, Tilly Foster was tarnished by disrepair and underuse.  To bring this gem of the Hudson Valley back to life, the County initiated an ambitious plan to restore the farm and various structures on the property, so the community and tourists could once again enjoy Tilly Foster’s unique aesthetic and historic significance.

The Farm has alpaca, chickens, goats, horses, and pigs, as well as numerous buildings, barns, houses, and animal sheds. There are a couple of ponds (one on each side of the road) and lovely vistas.
