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.
