An important part of the rural character of Mount Holly is our farming heritage. We support actively working farms as well as preserving farmland.
The Dana-Seward Farm Conservation Project
In 2003, we conserved 77 acres of mixed farmland and woodland along Route 155 thanks to support from the Vermont Land Trust, the Freeman Foundation, and over 150 residents of Mount Holly who contributed to the project.
Freeman / Fiske Land
In 2004, a private donation of a conservation easement on 40 acres of property across from the Dana-Seward Project brought that total to 117 acres along Rte 155.
Lory and Pete Doolittle
In 2005, we received a private donation of a conservation easement on 70 acres of property on Bowlsville Road.
