Westford Protects Salt Box Farm

Congratulations to the Town of Westford!  At the 2018 Town Meeting on March 24, town residents approved the recommendations of the Community Preservation Committee, which included a provision to purchase a conservation restriction (CR) on 45 acres of Salt Box Farm for $1.13 million.

The CR prohibits development of the 45 acres while allowing farming, grazing, and forestry.  The house, barn, and six acres currently being farmed are not protected by the CR.

Salt Box Farm is located on Wright Avenue, near the Town of Westford’s Prospect Hills Conservation Area and Burns Hill Conservation Area. SVT will co-hold the CR and will construct a trail that connects to trails on abutting conservation lands. Read more about the project.
