Small farms, which provide fresh, healthy food and contribute to local economies, are fast disappearing, only to be replaced by large development projects.

Help us buck this trend.

SVT has joined a collaborative effort to protect Thistle Dew Farm in Holliston. With your support, we will succeed.The Town of Holliston and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are purchasing an Agricultural Preservation Restriction on the 28-acre property to ensure it remains used for agriculture. Together, they are contributing, $965,588 of the $1.1 million purchase price.

SVT has committed to raising $150,000 so the project can close this year. These funds will close the gap on the purchase price and cover project costs.

Good news! We have secured a tremendous pledge with the help of Mass Audubon. If we can raise $50,000, an anonymous donor will contribute the final $100,000—a two-for-one match!

We still need to raise 12.131. Please help save this land for agriculture. Your donation, in any amount, will help bring this project over the finish line.
