CONSERVATION

Since 1928, the Peaslee farm has dedicated their lives to farming and being good stewards of the land. We believe in taking the necessary steps to protect the land and water with good agriculture practices.

 

A large portion of our land is along the Connecticut River, and we create grass buffers between tillable crops and the rivers edge. Last year we planted over 1,500 young trees to help with river restoration on three separate parcels.

 

Peaslee's Vermont Potatoes partners with Vermont Land Trust

 

In 2013, we partnered with the Vermont Land Trust and placed 170 acres in a conservation easement. This will ensure our land will remain open and productive farmland for generations to come.

 

“Being able to protect such valuable Connecticut River farmland, associated with an 85-year-old family farm business, is incredibly exciting,” said Tracy Zschau, of Vermont Land Trust. “It’s great to know that this land will remain farmland for generations to come.”

 

We are proud of our family’s heritage. Protecting this land allows us to honor the legacy of our father and his parents for generations to come.
