Byron Gallup on the farm

Byron Gallup, the 13th-generation landowner of Gallup Farm, partnered with the Connecticut Farmland Trust, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the Connecticut Department of Agriculture (DoAg) to complete the final easement to preserve his farm. The preservation of Gallup Farm—a 350-year-old, 498-acre dairy farm in Voluntown—protects it as a historical site, wildlife habitat, and open space. It also protects it from non-agricultural use, securing it as a food supply. The Gallup farm is preserved through the DoAg Farmland Preservation Program
