Stowe Land Trust Completes Fund Raising Effort

The Kaiser Farm is one of the last remaining working farms in Stowe, and is a reminder of the importance of protecting the special landscape sourrounding us.  Thanks to the Stowe Land Trust, and the generous donations from the organization's supporters, this 49 acre farm will remain part of the working landscape out in scenic Nebraska Valley.  Stowe Land Trust, will purchase a conservation easement, and in turn, sell the property to the new buyers at the agricultural value. 

Christine Kaiser, has farmed there for decades, and was featured in the Ben Hewitt's book, The Town That Food Saved, about the local food movement, in Hardwick.

This collaborative conservation effort, along with the Vermont Land Trust, will ensure this scenic farmland be perserved, provide access to farm fresh and local food in the area, and support the next generation of farmers in our community.  Andrew and Annie Paradee are the young couple who will be buying the farm. 

The completion date of the purchase and ultimate preservation of the property, is projected to take place by the end of April.  For more information about this exciting project, you can visit the Stowe Land Trust website.

    New Inventory in a Tight Market

    Buyer demand remains high, but the level of inventory is still the lowest we've seen in years.  Residential sales will increase as we continue to move through the most active part of the selling season. In the meantime, here are some exceptional new properties which I've recently listed:

     

                 

    New custom built home located in one of Stowe’s most desirable locations, with sweeping Mt. Mansfield Views. 

    This well known builder has created a winning combination of perfection with exceptional design, comfort, and gorgeous views. For more information and photos of this gorgeous new home, with a beautiful brook running through the property, click here.

    Timeless design choices include a floor to ceiling stone chimney, and custom kitchen.  Take in the sounds of the Sterling Brook on your property, or jump on your mountain bike to ride the vast network of trails nearby.  For more on this beautiful property, click here.

    Cady Hill Forest Update

    As you may know, Cady Hill Forest in Stowe - a recreation destination for all types of users - was devastated by a wind storm last October.  You may have seen photographs of some areas that now lay barren after hundreds, perhaps thousands of trees were blown down and have since been logged out.  Seeing it in person can only show the true reality of what happened there.  The good news is that at least part of Cady Hill Forest will be back online by early to mid-summer. There are still some unknowns, but recovery is within sight.

    The timber harvest and salvage effort on the southern end of Cady Hill Forest (near Charlie’s and Florence Trails) was completed in late January. 

    Local logger Jed Lipsky and his crew are slated to return to the Bear’s Trail and Cady Hill Climb area, this week to complete  timber harvest effort there, before spring. 

    As far as getting the trails back online, the ultimate goal is to clear the lesser affected trails like Snake, the Schween Haus Loops, Cady Hill Connector, Upper Bear’s, etc., and create a spring loop that will be accessible via the substation on Cady Hill Road, and potentially via the iRide parking lot.  In some cases the situation is still dangerous, with trees precariously hanging and tangling overhead, so some sections of trail will have to be rerouted.

    Come spring, volunteer-based recovery efforts will begin.  Stowe Trails Partnership’s annual Spring Trail Work Day, which is Saturday May 5th at 9 a.m., will focus on getting as much of Cady Hill rideable, and walkable as possible. 

    Stowe Trails Partnership, the Town of Stowe, and Stowe Land Trust haven't let up on their efforts since the storm, to ensure this most invaluable resource be available to the community who has come to embrace this conserved recreational gem, as one of the finest.
