You have hopefully heard about the 144-acre Messer Farm property in New London, which Ausbon Sargent was able to purchase after fundraising during most of 2020. On December 31, 2020, a lease was signed with neighboring Spring Ledge Farm, enabling them to continue using the farmland to grow produce on the property. In that same month, a 9.4-acre piece of property, abutting the Messer Farm property along Morgan Hill Road, went on the market. Upon further investigation, Ausbon Sargent Land Trust has determined that this parcel would be a huge asset to making the most of the Messer Farm property for both recreation and for forest management.

We at Ausbon Sargent are pleased to announce that after a strenuous review process over the last year, the land trust has secured accreditation renewal with the Land Trust Accreditation Commission. This designation is awarded to only about 400 of the over 1,300 land trusts in the country. Read more about this achievement here.
