According to the American Farmland Trust, 3 acres of farmland are lost to development every minute in the United States.
In Montgomery County, MHLC has an opportunity to save 540 acres of farmland-forever! We are working to protect the Triumpho farmland: 540 acres in St. Johnsville which have been in the Triumpho family for over 100 years. We need funds to permanently preserve the land’s many treasures: fertile soils, the banks and waters of Zimmerman Creek (a key water source for St. Johnsville), and hundreds of acres of rolling hills, forests, and fields.
Can you help us protect the Triumpho farmland? Saving land requires many resources and we need your help to close a funding gap of $20,000. Together, we can preserve the legacy of this historic farm-forever.
