Hamp Takes Back the Land: Make that 2 Farms!

With mortgage foreclosures flooding the housing market and impending threats of food shortages, Hamp is taking steps to take back the land...

After a significant meeting of the City Council, the Daily Hampshire Gazette reported the following:

"Northampton officials advanced a plan Wednesday to buy not only the Bean family farm off Spring Street, but the abutting - and much bigger - Allard Farm."  Click here for the full Hampshire Gazette story.....

As of 1/25, the City Council has approved the purchase of the Bean Farm. The next step is to get the city's CPC to approve preservation funds....the deadline looms.
