Farms We’ve Protected


Way family farm

Pompey, NY


In agriculture for over a century, the 156-acre Way Family Farm is an integral part of the town’s rural fabric.  The Way, Clapp and Palladino families have worked together for over thirty years and joined together to protect all of their land through conservation easements.  These three contiguous farms create a block of over 600 acres of protected farmland in the community.  Mary Way of the Way Family Farm is proud to participate in the conservation effort. “It’s what my husband wanted,” she says, “I’m really glad we did it.”
