Posted February 23rd, 2015 by maryalbro and filed in News & Announcements

At its quarterly meeting held in New York City on February 6, The 1772 Foundation approved a discretionary grant of $40,000 to The Trust for Public Land for the Robie Farm Conservation Project. Robie Farm is a diversified dairy operation located in Piermont, New Hampshire. The project will protect 150 acres of productive agricultural land along the Connecticut River as well as facilitate the farm’s inter-generational transfer. With newly available resources, the Robie family will be able to increase cheese production to meet regional demand and expand the farm’s role in the regional food system.
