Protected by: Connecticut Farmland Trust, CT Department of Agriculture, Town of Lebanon
Year Protected: 2014
This 64-acre parcel was once part of Connecticut’s largest dairy farm. Today, the remaining land is used by a young farm family with a diversified operation, which includes beef cattle, horses, chickens, and pigs. Additional land is rented to a near-by dairy farmer who makes hay.
The town of Lebanon has over 5,000 acres of protected farmland, more than any other town in the state of Connecticut. The protection of the Williams Farm will continue to contribute to the town’s agricultural viability for years to come.
Funding for the project was provided by the 1772 Foundation, the Town of Lebanon, and the CT Department of Agriculture.
