Farms, Fields, and Forests

Franklin Land Trust is a non-profit in western Massachusetts that assists farmers and other landowners who want to protect their land from unwanted development. FLT has helped hundreds of families in the region to address their financial goals, family needs, and conservation vision.

Local Farms, Local Food

This fall, we invite you to explore the connection between the local food you love and the conserved land where it is grown using our new local farm guide.

Places to Visit

The Franklin Land Trust owns conservation areas in Shelburne, Heath, Plainfield, and Buckland that are open to the public for passive recreation including hiking, fishing, bird watching, hunting and nature study.
