Saving the family farm in Millis

Posted by Ralph Ranalli February 7, 2008 01:56 PM


Selectmen Monday will meet with a representative from the Trustees of Reservations to discuss backing the group's plan to ensure that a local farm is preserved.

Town Administrator Charles Aspinwall said the group is working to obtain a state grant, which it
will use to purchase a conservation restriction for the land, which has been known around town as the Bigelow Farm. The property is located off of Norfolk Road.

The town could support the plan by putting community preservation funds toward the conservation restriction or by adopting a "right-to-farm" bylaw, Apsinwall said.
