The Faces of Forever Farmland


The land we use to grow our food--whether it's a hilltop dairy farm, a valley vegetable field,
or an urban community garden — is irreplaceable. Farmers from farms throughout
the region share why preserving their land forever was good for them — and for all of us.


Listen to Colrain dairy farmer, Larry Shearer talk about the importance of conserving his
beautiful farm with the help of the Franklin Land Trust and the state APR program.
