The Woodbridge Land Trust invites the public to walk scenic Baldwin Road Farm, Saturday June 2, 2pm. This guided walk, which is free and open to the public, will occur rain or shine.
Come and view this historic farm, part of a large tract of land originally purchased by the Baldwin family from the Paugussett Indians in 1660. In partnership with the State of Connecticut Department of Agriculture and the Connecticut Farmland Trust, the Woodbridge Land Trust has entered into an agreement to permanently protect Baldwin Road Farm. We anticipate a closing during the summer and are currently seeking financial support.
Contributions to this fundraising campaign will be used to purchase the development rights to the farm at 902 Baldwin Road, to ensure that it can never be subdivided and can only be used for agriculture. The Land Trust will also hold an easement for a walking trail, open to the public.
The Land Trust’s efforts have been endorsed by the Town of Woodbridge, The Woodbridge Park Association, the Amity-Woodbridge Historical Society, The Garden Club of Woodbridge, Massaro Community Farm, and the Woodbridge Rotary Club. We thank all of these wonderful organizations for their support and encourage townspeople to join with us to preserve Baldwin Road Farm.
