Sudbury

State grant for farm preservation

Continue reading below

The town has received a $400,000 state grant toward the preservation of Pantry Brook Farm. Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Rick Sullivan said Sudbury was one of 13 municipalities that have been awarded land conservation grants totaling more than $3 million that will help protect 862 acres of farms, wetlands, forests, and wildlife habitat. In Sudbury, the grant will be used to acquire a conservation restriction on 94 acres of a large historic farm. The property has been in agricultural use under one family since the 1700s, and will continue to be farmed. Public access will be focused on the wooded area on the eastern portion of the property. The property connects to Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge and includes 5,000 feet of shoreline on the Pantry and Saw Mill brooks.
