SUFFIELD — The town and the Connecticut Department of Agriculture have purchased development rights for 164 acres of farmland, preserving two adjoining properties on Phelps and Quarry Roads.

The properties line either side of the Farmington Canal Heritage trail, which makes them particularly desirable candidates for preservation, according to Economic Development Director Patrick McMahon. As part of the deal, an acre of land will be deeded to the town for Canal trail parking.
