The Barnes family donated an agricultural conservation easement on their 187-acre farm in honor and memory of Benjamin Barnes, who ran the family’s dairy operation on the farm.  The property includes rolling pastures with prime important farmland soils and a significant forest tract that protects the Collinsville Reservoir watershed.  The farm is now partially leased to a local farmer to pasture beef cattle and sheep.
