A legacy that will not be forgotten!

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing (24 May 2020) of Judith Gillan, founder of the New England Small Farm Institute. Judy was instrumental in creating, encouraging and maintaining the dreams of many farmers here at NESFI's Lampson Brook Farm Agricultural Reserve and her legacy will not be forgotten.

A link to her obituary is listed below:
