The Leavenworth property consists of gently sloping undeveloped open space land, primarily forest and fields that comprises the well known Leavenworth Tree Farm. The Property has been owned by the Leavenworth family since 1952. Scenic Christmas Tree and open fields on the Property have been a fixture along the Coleman Road streetscape.
The property is part of an unspoiled agricultural landscape along Coleman Road that is increaseingly more uncommon in Cheshire due to residential development. The Leavenworth & Knickerbocker families determined that acquisition of a Conservation Restriction on their Property will promote its charitable purposes of protecting areas of rural, scenic, agricultural,watershed, and natural resource value in their hometown of Cheshire
The agreement with the CLT ensures that their farm property may be used now and in the future for agricultural, passive recreational, horticultural,animal husbandry, equestrian, forestry, and related purposes with no residential development on the property now or in the future.
With an invitation from Charlotte Leavenworth, a longtime member, The Cheshire Land Trust became a willing partner in the conservation planning early in 2011 culminating in the agreement with her family in March 2013.
Today 38 acres of the 42 acre farm are protected by this agreement.
