Harvard Residents Support APR at Prospect Hill Orchard

At their Annual Town Meeting on June 20, 2020, voters in the Town of Harvard agreed to contribute $150,000 of Community Preservation Funds toward the purchase of an agricultural preservation restriction (APR) on Prospect Hill Orchard. 

SVT is part of the team that is working to conserve the land, and we are thrilled that town residents took this important step toward its protection.

The 75-acre orchard is owned and operated by Community Harvest Project (CHP), a nonprofit organization that engages volunteers in the fight against hunger and supplies apples to local food banks.

To ensure the future of its charitable work, CHP has teamed up with the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources, the Town of Harvard, Harvard Conservation Trust (HCT), and SVT to raise funds to endow the orchard. This will be done through the sale of the APR, which will allow farming to continue on the land and prevent the property from ever being developed.

Prospect Hill Orchard is made up of 75 stunning acres in Harvard. Since 2014, it has been owned and operated by Community Harvest Project, a nonprofit with a mission to engage volunteers in the fight against hunger. Since 2015, CHP has donated over 360,000 pounds of apples to food banks with the help of hundreds of volunteers.
