In 2007 voters decided to purchase development rights of the Dutra and Neale farms. This ensures that approximately 1,000 acres of central island land will be preserved as farmland in perpetuity.
This was in 2007. Since then a few more transactions have taken place. Coulden’t be more happier that such a large swath of land has been placed into conservation on such a small island. Our family has been here for many decades.
