125-acre farm preserved through Vermont Land Trust

WESTMINSTER, Vt. (AP) -- A Vermont farm has been preserved for the next generation of farmers.

The Vermont Land Trust has bought development rights through a conservation easement to the 125-acre Harlow Farm on Route 5 in Westminster. It sells flowers, organic product, plants, maple syrup and preserves.

Paul Harlow, who took over the farm in the 1970s, tells the Brattleboro Reformer ( he will use the $360,000 to invest in his land and save for retirement. The farm's been in his family since his grandfather bought it in 1917.

Funding came from the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, with matching funds from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Most types of development will be prohibited on the land, but Harlow is allowed to build farm labor housing or another greenhouse.
