Lucy Brook Farm Project

 

Inspired by a strong family tradition of land conservation, the Gaudette family, owners of Lucy Brook Farm, are protecting their 45-acres of farmland, maple sugar bush, and riparian forest along scenic West Side Road in Conway. This corner of Conway was settled by the John Lucy family in the early 1800’s, and many of his descendants (including the Gaudettes) still live on and farm the land. The Lucy Brook Farm is also just downstream from our 2016 Lucy Family Farm project.

USVLT hopes to purchase a conservation easement on the property, which will allow the farm to remain intact for future generations.  Important conservation values of the property include:

  • 2250 & 940 feet of frontage along Lucy Brook and the Saco River, respectively
  • 40 acres of the Highest Ranked Habitat in New Hampshire, as identified by the state’s Wildlife Action Plan
  • 44 acres of prime and locally important agricultural soils
  • Underlain entirely by the high yield aquifer that provides drinking water to area towns
  • Connectivity to conserved lands including the White Mountain National Forest, NH state parks, and other conservation easement lands, including ones held by USVLT

Project Total: $242,000

We are delighted to announce that we received a $87,500 grant from USDA’s Agricultural Land Easement (ACEP-ALE) program to jumpstart this project. Please add your support.
