New Paltz farm protected with conservation easement

KINGSTON – Ulster County Executive Michael Hein signed a resolution protecting the 32-acre Taliaferro Farms in New Paltz ensuring the property will continue to be available to farm indefinitely.

The county partnered with Scenic Hudson Land Trist, Wallkill Valley Land Trust and the Town of New Paltz to secure the easement, the first one under Hein’s Open Space and Recreation Fund.

“As someone who grew up on a farm, I fully appreciate that Ulster County has a tremendous agricultural history and today we were able to acknowledge that history while also protecting its future,” Hein said. “Taliaferro Farms is a fixture in Ulster County and I am grateful that it will remain dedicated to farming for generations to come.”
