The Forest Society is working together with the Town of Boscawen to purchase a conservation easement on 115 acres of high-quality agricultural land on Long and Water Streets in Boscawen from the Morrill family. The Morrill Dairy Farm has been in operation for nearly a century and is now owned by Rob and Sherri Morrill and their sons, Andy, Kevin, and Ryan, and daughter Kim. The family works together on the farm.
Check out our latest project in Lee, NH. Tuckaway Farm has excellent agricultural soils, plus crazy good wildlife habitat thanks to enhanced 4,000 feet of frontage on the Oyster River—-which is also a drinking water source for the city of Durham and the University of New Hampshire. What’s not to like?
To help the Easement Stewardship team monitor thousands of acres of conservation properties, the Volunteer Easement Monitoring Program (VEMP) was started in 2016. Since then, the program has been gradually expanding.
