Ausbon Sargent Closes on Messer Farm Expansion Property

We are happy to share the exciting news that Ausbon Sargent has just closed on the 9.4-acre Messer Farm Expansion property in New London! This land purchase came together rather quickly, once we learned that the parcel abutting our newly-purchased Messer Farm property was up for sale. And thanks to over 350 donors, the Burton Morgan Foundation and Fields Pond Foundation, we were able to close on April 15, as originally planned. The Messer Farm Expansion property is the 13th property that the land trust owns and manages.
