Ticket sales raised over $6,000 to help preserve the land that Mary lovingly depicted in her painting.

The the Farm and Ranch Land Protection Program (FRPP), a program staffed by the National Resource Conservation Service, is providing half the funds needed to purchase the conservation easements on both the land already owned by High Mowing and the 101 acres soon to be bought from Gary and Gail Frye.

High Mowing is proud to call the Town of Wilton a partner in our effort to protect this beautiful piece of land. Home to diverse wildlife, rich soils, and vital water sources, this land is representative of the beautiful, rural qualities for which Wilton prides itself. In keeping with that respect for nature, Wilton residents decided in March to support High Mowing's effort to conserve Frye Field.
