  • 89-Acre Tooker Farm Conserved

    Retired farmer Donald Tooker generously donated a conservation easement to permanently protect 89 acres of productive farmland in the heart of the Town of Wilton. The closing took place on October 24th. The farm, located near the junction of Jones and Old Gick roads, is used for growing alfalfa for the Kings Ransom Dairy Farm and vegetables for the Vincek Farm. In addition, Tooker retails his own honey harvested from 30 hives scattered throughout the area and manages 27 acres of native woodlands on the property. With the assistance of Saratoga PLAN, a not-for-profit land trust, the farm will be conserved primarily for agricultural purposes. Read More
