Scenic Hudson congratulates our friends and partners at the Westchester Land Trust for their acquisition of development rights to the 172-acre Stuart's Fruit Farm in Granite Springs. Thanks to a conservation easement, this land can never be sold for residential development and will remain available for agricultural use. In addition to growing and selling local fruits and vegetables, Stuart's farm also welcomes visitors to learn about the importance of local agriculture.
