South Hero Land Trust
Help Conserve the Sawyer Bay Farm on
South Hero’s West Shore!
South Hero Land Trust has worked hard over the last year, along with Vermont Land Trust, to conserve 178 acres of excellent farmland and extensive barns on South Hero’s west shore. We are excited to annouce that we closed on the sale of the farm to Health Hero Farm in late 2013. BUT- we are still working hard to raise the last $210,000 we need to complete the Sawyer Bay Farm Fundraising Campaign, and we'd love to hear from you!
With many acres of prime and statewide agricultural soils, 140 acres of tillable farmland, approximately 35 acres of additional pasture land, and 1,100 feet of frontage on Lake Champlain this farm is an essential agricultural resource for the South Hero community.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to keep this land available to farmers in the present and the future. Our farming community, the food they produce, and the personal connections we have to our land through them, are critical to our way of life in South Hero and Vermont.
We need your support to make it happen!
