South Hero Land Trust
We've had an amazing summer of events in South Hero and around the Champlain Islands. From cooking classes and demonstrations, to farm visits and nature walks, we loved spending time with the community on the land. We're settling in now, and working hard to raise the last $334,000 we need to complete the Sawyer Bay Farm project this year, and we'd love to hear from you!
Help Conserve the Sawyer Bay Farm on
South Hero’s West Shore!
South Hero Land Trust is working with Vermont Land Trust to conserve 178 acres of excellent farmland and extensive barns on South Hero’s west shore.
With many acres of prime and statewide agricultural soils, 140 acres of tillable farmland, approximately 35 acres of additional pasture land, and 1,100 feet of frontage on Lake Champlain this farm is an essential agricultural resource for the South Hero community.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to keep this land available to farmers in the present and the future. Our farming community, the food they produce, and the personal connections we have to our land through them, are critical to our way of life in South Hero and Vermont.
We need your support to make it happen!
Annual Celebration and Picnic
We had an amazing day at the Sawyer Bay Farm for our Annual Celebration and Picnic on August 3rd! Many thanks to the wonderful friends and neighbors who came out to celebrate 16 years of conservation in South Hero.
