Sweetwilliam Farm needs your help!
June 16, 2011
SVT, the Upton Open Space Committee, and the Friends of Sweetwilliam Farm have been working with the owners of Sweetwilliam Farm and Town officials for several years to try to protect this ecologic and historic resource.
In an incredibly close vote, Upton Special Town Meeting approved the Sweetwilliam Farm conservation acquisition on January 11th.
The total price for protection of the farm is $1,175,000. Of this, the Town’s share is approximately $614,500, using Community Preservation Funds (and including the state match). A state grant for $500,000 toward the project was awarded in October. SVT and the Friends of Sweetwilliam Farm have raised $64,037 of a $95,000 fundraising goal. We need $74,000 at closing, which is scheduled for Tuesday, June 21st.
