History

Landon Farm was purchased by the Land Trust and partners in 2001 and permanently conserved in 2003 as part of the larger Round Pond Natural Area project.  The South Hero Land Trust and Lake Champlain Land Trust worked with the first farmers to weave a public trail through their northern farm woodlot.  Volunteers played a key role in helping the staff members of the Lake Champlain Land Trust and South Hero Land Trust build the public Landon Farm Community Trail.  The new agricultural operation, East Shore Vineyard, is committed to protecting the Landon Community Trail as part of its future plans for the property.

Because this trail is on a working farm, temporary trail closures may occur.  Please respect trail closure signs.

 

Partners

Landon Farm was conserved as part of the larger Round Pond Natural Area project in partnership with the South Hero Land Trust, Vermont Land Trust, The Nature Conservancy, the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, and the Lake Champlain Land Trust.  We also appreciate the active partnership of Ben Durant, owner of the East Shore Vineyard.
