Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust Inc's Fundraiser:

Campaign for Red Fire Farm

THE STORY:

Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust has launched a Capital Campaign to Raise $400,000 for Mount Grace’s Purchase of 122 Acres of Montague Farm Land.

Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust’s first effort to protect whole farm affordability, the Red Fire Farm Project, addresses the urgent local need for permanently affordable working farms. This innovative conservation project will help establish procedures and a range of models, based on Equity Trust’s efforts, that can be applied to other farm conservation projects throughout our region.

Utilizing a land tenure model in which ownership of the farm will be divided, with Mount Grace owning the land and Red Fire Farm owning the farmhouse, barn, and other farm infrastructure, this project addresses current shortcomings in farm conservation options.

By holding farmland as a community resource over the long term, Mount Grace will help ensure that working farms are able to provide the Pioneer Valley with healthy, locally grown food in perpetuity.
