Year Protected: 2002
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.
Barnes Farm is privately owned and is not open to the public.
