The icons below lead you toward eight working farms that RRCT has helped conserve with forever farm conservation easements, as well as other farms in the Royal River watershed protected by the Maine Farmland Trust and the Freeport Conservation Trust. In addition to the farms on this map, RRCT holds another four conservation easements especially in North Yarmouth and Pownal that allow agriculture in the future, and today produce hay or support equestrian uses. Maine Farmland Trust holds at least one new additional agricultural easement not yet on this map (in North Yarmouth); together we are constantly working on new projects.
Once RRCT has accepted a conservation easement on a farm, our obligation and responsibility is to visit the property at least once a year to ensure that the farm continues to live under the terms of the conservation easement. We work closely with farmers, providing technical assistance and supporting their efforts toward thriving Maine farms.
