Amy Manzelli Works to Permanently Conserve Family Farm
Amy Manzelli recently worked with Agrarian Trust, whose mission is to support land access for the next generation of farmers, to secure a conservation easement on Wingate Farm, which preserves the farm for future generations of farmers and ensures that the whole farm – the house, barns, and land – stay together. A significant component of the easement was an OPAV (Option to Purchase at Agricultural Value), which ensures that all futures sales of Wingate Farm will be to farmers at fair market agricultural value. This is the first time such a provision has been used to protect active agricultural land in New Hampshire.
