Ellington Buys Development Rights Farm

Jul 21st, 2010 | By | Category: Farm, Preservation

The acquisition of development rights of the 119-acre Silverherz farm property on Pinney Street by the town and the state has been completed.

The preservation of the farm is Ellington’s first joint acquisition with the state and the federal Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program administered by the U. S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resource Conservation Service. It is also the first acquisition under the $2 million local farmland protection bonding program approved by voters during a November 2007 referendum.
