You Did It!
We have reached our fundraising goal for the Huckins Farm Conservation Project thanks to over 90 LRCT members, and generous grants from the NH’s Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP), the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the New Hampshire Farm Future Fund, and the Town of New Hampton, NH.
Conservation Project Summary
This conservation easement will permanently protect approximately 128 acres of the farm’s productive and scenic farmland and forests. Now that funding is secured LRCT can move forward to work with the family to complete the conservation easement process over the next six to twelve months.
Huckins Farm is a family-owned, 200+ year old, Grade A Dairy Farm whose mission is “to provide wholesome, nutritious products for you and your loved ones while promoting education through workshops and classes as we work together to cultivate a more healthy, sustainable, and loving world.” LRCT is proud to work with Huckins Farm to conserve its magnificent landscape and to play a role in securing the farm’s next 200 years.
If this farmland conservation project inspires you, please support the conservation of other Lakes Region farms by donating to the Lakes Region Farmland Protection Fund. We look forward to working with more farms in the future.
