Lakeside Jersey Farm (2008)

South Hero Land Trust, Vermont Land Trust, and Castanea Foundation worked with Ron and Celia Hackett to conserve 92 acres of agricultural land, forestland, and farm infrastructure formerly known as the Roy Farm. The property is now owned by Ron and Celia, who are leasing the property to the Maxham family. The Maxhams use the property for cropland and raising their prize-winning Jersey herd. This project was partly funded by a generous grant from the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board and has a conservation easement that is co-held by the Vermont Land Trust and the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board.
