Upper Valley Land Trust To Purchase Norwich Farm
VTC discontinuing dairy education program at farm
Norwich Farm, the 6-acre complex with agricultural buildings, a classroom and a farmhouse on Turnpike Road, will have a new owner come May. The Upper Valley Land Trust (UVLT) exercised its option to purchase the property from Vermont Technical College. The farm adjoins the UVLT’s Brookmead Conservation Area.
The Sigler Foundation donated the farm and the 352-acre Brookmead land to Vermont Technical College (VTC) in 2015. VTC sold the Brookmead land to the UVLT a few months later along with an option to buy the farm, if the college discontinued its agricultural education programs there. VTC will end its dairy education programs at Norwich Farm this spring.
