Thank You for Attending!
This year we were fortunate to have Molly Comstock, founder of Colfax Farm, speak about CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) and her experience starting and operating a successful organic vegetable farm. You may have seen Molly at the West Stockbridge Farmers’ Market with her bountiful produce. She has recently moved her work to Twin Oaks Farm here in Alford. Molly has been farming for ten years in Berkshire and Columbia Counties, and is looking forward to establishing a long-term base here in Alford. After the talk, we had an opportunity to tour her operation at Twin Oaks Farm on West Road.
The Alford Land Trust is a nonprofit member organization founded in 2003 by community residents to protect significant natural, agricultural and scenic resources; and to promote and encourage land stewardship for the benefit of the environment, the economy, and future generations.
The map shown here indicates land conserved in Alford as of 2012. Also in 2012, we received a gift of ten acres on West Road from the Schiffman Family.
Our Trust helps preserve Alford's natural beauty and agrarian character by managing protected land and educating the community about land stewardship. We hope to increase awareness of the connection between land use decisions and quality of life in our region.
