Farms for the Future

Through our Farms for the Future Initiative we seek to not only protect farmland, but also support farmers working the land. This year we’re leasing to 33 unique farm operations across 343 acres. These new and returning farmers are growing everything from vegetables and flowers to bees for honey and oysters, snails, and cattle. See the full list of farms below and look out for their products at local markets.
