Description

Phillips Farm, acquired by SLT in 2002, is 105 acres of panoramic ridgeline views, pastoral meadows, uncommon old growth forest, an old apple orchard, delicate marshland and wetland areas. Located on unpaved Sanford Road, where the popular author Gladys Taber lived and wrote about the pleasures of country living, Phillips Farm is a scenic emblem of Southbury’s rural past. Lovdal Farm, acquired in 2005, hosts a variety of wildlife, birds, agricultural fields, plants and trees on the 50-acre property.

Owned and managed by the Southbury Land Trust. More info at 203-264-4441, email@southburylandtrust.org or www.southburylandtrust.org.
