About

A 24-acre working farm in Wainscott off Beach Lane was protected in 2005 as a result of the generosity of more than 110 neighbors who raised $2 million towards the Town of East Hampton’s purchase of development rights from the Babinski family at a bargain sale. The Trust was fortunate to have been able to assist the family and the town in the protection of the farmland.

The property is nearly 100% prime agricultural soils that have sustained the Babinski family and surrounding community for decades with the various vegetables grown there. 

Take a moment to watch Alec Hirschfeld’s film, The Field on Beach Lane, about the conservation of the farm. The film is part of Alec’s series, Out Here in the Fields, which includes films on Quail Hill Farm and Shellfisher Preserve.

Visitor Information

Bill and Lisa's farmstand, open during the summer season, sells fresh produce from the farm.
