Additional Information

Description

Thank you for your interest in the Storrs Farm in Williamstown. The Vermont Land Trust (VLT) is working with the owners to provide a farmer(s) with the opportunity to acquire this farm. VLT is seeking a farmer(s) who will operate a commercial farm business and contribute to the agricultural community. The farm will be sold subject to a perpetual farmland conservation easement that will allow all types of agricultural uses and new agricultural structures. The conservation easements will include the option to purchase at agricultural value. This option allows VLT to purchase the farm at its agricultural value should the buyer (or a future owner) attempt to sell the farm to a non-farmer. This provision helps ensure the long-term affordability of the property to future farmers. Additional farm labor housing may be constructed with prior approval. Open Houses We are hosting two open houses at the farm for potential buyers to see the property: Wednesday, October 11 and Saturday, October 28 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Please go to www.vlt.org/storrs for more information.
