New Auerfarm State Park Conservation Easement

Dan Donahue, Elizabeth Schiro, Eric Hammerling, Lindsay Suhr at CFPA Headquarters.

In December of 2014, CFPA acquired a conservation easement over the newest State Park in Connecticut called Auerfarm State Park Scenic Reserve. This 40-acre property has a rich history, at one point being part of the larger 230-acre Auerfarm owned and run by the Auerbach family. Auerfarm was founded in the early 20th century and was managed for 40 years as a working farm with dairy cows, poultry, and apple orchards. In 1976, 120-acres of Auerfarm were donated to form the 4-H Education Center at Auerfarm, which provides agricultural education to the greater Hartford region.
