News from the Farm: September 14, 2010

Hi everyone,

Yesterday a Cheshire Public Works employee told me that the dairy barn on the farm will be knocked down next week.

I’m very disappointed about this.

I value conservation of resources and have always thought that the barn would be a wonderful educational space for the town. I have heard that some of the timbers will be used in the restoration of the Ives barn on the Cheshire land trust property. This is very good because the frame of the barn is in excellent condition – one can’t find long lengths of 2 inch dimensional lumber any more. It would be a travesty if perfectly good framing lumber were to end up in a landfill or burned.

OK That’s my rant. Hopefully the demolition will not take place on a share-out day.

See you at the farm.
