The Centre County Farmland Trust is delighted to highlight the preserved land and ag heritage that help make the Route 45 corridor a beautiful destination: local, farm-fresh food, locally crafted beverages, cultural and ag heritage experiences and wonderful, vibrant art and music.
We are planning "Preservation Matters" a farmland preservation open house, at the CCFT-preserved, 42-acre Schempf Farm. Visitors can tour the land and learn the story of this private, preserved land that is an "enjoy from the road" stop on the Round Barn Farm Route.
The Schempf Farm is no longer a working farm and is not open to the public, so this is a rare chance to enjoy it up close. Lean more stories of preserved land on the Route 45 corridor, and how preservation, conservation and stewardship of these lands benefits us all.
Enjoy the vistas, birdsong and stories of preserved farms along the Route 45 corridor during "Preservation Matters," a farmland preservation open house, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m., Sat., July 30 at the beautiful, 42-acre Schempf Farm, 156 Cedar Run Road, preserved by the Centre County Farmland Trust.
Learn about work underway to improve the health and flow of Cedar Run, a tributary of Spring Creek, and how conservation and stewardship benefits us all. Bring a lawn chair and walking shoes. Please approach the property from Schempf Road, off Route 45.
