The Connecticut Department of Agriculture, with assistance from Northwest Connecticut Land Conservancy (NCLC), has permanently protected the Maple Bank Farm in Roxbury, owned by Cathleen and Howard Bronson. Using State and Federal funds, a conservation easement on over 50 acres of the eighth-generation farm was purchased, ensuring the farm is protected as an agricultural property forever.

Farmland conservation is vital to our quality of life and local economies here in Connecticut. NCLC, with the support of its members, is proud to work with our local farmers to protect these essential lands for our communities today and the generations to come,” said Executive Director, Catherine Rawson.
