Night Flight Farm

The Conservancy is very pleased to announce a 34-acre addition to the Night Flight Farm conservation easement in Rindge. These newly conserved 34 acres, which include 830 feet of road frontage along South Woodbound Road in Rindge, add to the 170 acres conserved in 2000. This addition was made possible thanks to the Lindell family – who bought the farm in 2002 and wanted to expand the protected area to include these previously excluded 34 acres. By holding a conservation easement on this property, the Conservancy is working to protect an area with both environmental and historical importance. The farm has been in operation in some form since 1750. In 1868, the farm was purchased by the Ware family, who operated it until the mid-20th century.

As its history would suggest, the land is ideal for farming, boasting productive soil of statewide and local importance. Connecting newly conserved land to previously conserved land is beneficial for wildlife and helps maintain the historic character of this farm.
