A long-time nursery farmer was looking to retire but wanted to ensure his property would always remain a working farm. EMSWCD acquired this 14-acre property in 2018, making it available in 2019 for a graduate of the Headwaters Farm Incubator Program, which this property directly adjoins. The habitat value of Johnson Creek – which cuts through the property – was also enhanced in 2019 via EMSWCD’s StreamCare program

Please note that because the property is a working farm and is under lease to a private party, public access is not permitted.
