This generous outpouring of support will allow us to accomplish significant things in 2016:

* Expand our outreach to local farmland owners;
* Identify high-priority farmland preservation projects;
* Leverage available grant funding to preserve our next farm;
* Protect Oyster Bay Farm in perpetuity and facilitate the transfer of the historic farm to a new generation of farmers; and
* Continue stewarding the farm properties we own, to ensure that their value to the community is maximized.”
