Protection of the Hassinger Farm

Posted in Categories Land Protection

On Tuesday, April 30, 2024, the Cedar Lakes Conservation Foundation (CLCF) purchased two farmland parcels totaling 34.2 acres off of Pleasant Valley Road in the Town of Polk. CLCF extends its gratitude to Karen, Jim, Ken and Jerry Hassinger for conserving the land that has been in their family since 1849. CLCF also thanks the Town of Polk for its help with the land division and private road agreement that were part of this transaction.

Conserving this property is of great importance for protecting watershed health, which is a big factor in ecosystem sustainability. At this time, the property will continue to be farmed.

With this acquisition, CLCF has helped to protect 2,962 acres, representing 22% of its mission area.
