Zarpentine Farms receives grant through Farmland Protection Program

The Town of Parma Open Space and Farm Land Protection Committee along with Genesee Land Trust invite the community to join them to celebrate the permanent protection of Zarpentine Farms on Burritt Road as working farmland. This is the second farmland protection project that the Town of Parma and Genesee Land Trust have partnered on, the first being the Martin Farm in 2010.

The protection of Zarpentine Farms was made possible by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Farmland Protection Program, through a competitive grant award to purchase the development rights on the 98 acres. The farm continues, but the land cannot be subdivided or developed into houses.
