we did it! osguthorpe farm - 160 acres forever protected

In March 2019, the Summit Land Conservancy completed our fundraising campaign to save the 160-acre Osguthorpe Farm located on Old Ranch Road in the heart of the Snyderville Basin. The project received a noteworthy $8.8 million federal grant from the Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS) Agricultural Conservation Easement Program; the largest grant ever awarded for farmland preservation in the state of Utah. The federal funding was leveraged with a generous family contribution of $3.9 million, and over $5 million from individual donors in our community. We are inspired by the 1,203 heroes who came together over the course of our fundraising campaign to save a piece of our agricultural heritage from development. THANK YOU.

 

SOMETHING always
