Join the Westport Land Conservation Trust for its third annual Meet Your Local Farmers event, co-sponsored by the Westport Grange and the Westport Agricultural Commission. Saturday, January 23rd, 1-3pm, 931 Main Road.Come meet farmers and learn of their plans for the upcoming season. Products will be sold, if available. This event is free and open to the public.

Immediately following this year’s Meet Your Local Farmers event, the Westport Land Conservation Trust will host an open forum regarding new management plans for two of their most popular Destination Properties:

“As part of our organizational mission to protect agricultural land and encourage its continued use, WLCT announced in September, through the Westport Agricultural Commission, that we were exploring the idea of expanding the amount of WLCT-owned agricultural land that we lease to farmers.

We want to provide members of the community the opportunity to ask questions before we finalize this plan.  As a result, WLCT staff and two prospective farmers will be holding a forum regarding two possible agricultural leases–one at our Headwaters Conservation Area, and the second at our Herb Hadfield Conservation Area.”
