Sunny Rock Farm was once a beloved center of local farming in the community, offering residents of Walpole, Massachusetts, milk in glass bottles, fresh eggs, holiday pies, Christmas trees, and hayrides pulled by the farm tractors.
In 2010, The Trust for Public Land worked with the city of Northampton to conserve Bean and Allard Farms along the Mill River, to preserve local farming for the community, and expand recreational opportunities.
A significant portion of historic Buffalo Hill Farm, the former summer home of Dr. Elliott P. Joslin and Elizabeth D. Joslin, has been permanently conserved for agricultural purposes, The Trust for Public Land and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts announced today.
Working from more than 30 offices nationwide, The Trust for Public Land offers a range of services to meet the conservation needs of the 21st century. We help communities raise funds, conduct research and planning, acquire and protect land, and design and renovate parks, playgrounds, trails, and gardens.
