Long Winter (Kaiser) Farm
The property has been, and continues to be a small-scale, diversified family farm. Current owners and farmers, Annie & Andrew Paradee, were able to purchase the conserved farm in 2016 from Christine Kaiser. They now operate the property as Long Winter Farm. The property's conservation saved one of the few remaining working farms in Stowe, protected the beauty and rural character of Nebraska Valley, and made the farm affordable for the next generation of farmers.
The farm has 11 acres of prime and 14 acres of statewide agricultural soils with a mixture of tillable, pasture and woodland. The forestland includes a maple sugarbush. The farm also has 3,200 feet of frontage on Miller Brook, and has an established riparian buffer.
From Moscow Village, drive 2.8 miles up Nebraska Valley Road. The barns and farm are on the left.

Conservation has allowed me to pass my farm along to the next generation of farmers. Without the sale of the easement and the help of the land trusts, I would not have been able to retire and also make it work financially. The easement also makes the farm affordable for a working farmer.Christine Kaiser
