Farms We’ve Protected

clapp family farm

Pompey, NY

The 176-acre Clapp Family Farm has been in their family for over a century and has had a long history of supporting and celebrating agriculture.  With 87% of the farm consisting of Prime or Statewide Important Soils, this highly productive land is an asset to the agricultural community. Residential development on these lands would not only meant a loss of farmland, but also threaten the local environment. Streams running through the property flow into significant aquifers and watersheds, as well as into Pratt Falls.  By protecting this farm, the landowners have preserved the area’s agricultural heritage and ensured its future.
