Valcour Farm: SLT Fundraising Goal Met!

Thanks to your support, Stowe Land Trust raised $11,930* to help the Vermont Land Trust permanently protect the 173-acre Valcour Farm on the corner of Randolph and Goeltz Roads in Morristown. Once conserved, the farm will be kept affordable for the next generation of farmers and sold at its agricultural value to local farmer, Jesse Hursh. Thank you for your investment in local farms and farming!
