Weantinoge Awarded Grant for Exterior Repairs on the Smyrski Farm

Weantinoge permanently protects 29-working farms, including the 220-acre Smyrski Farm in Merryall.
This year, the farm’s white barns underwent repairs and were repainted. This work was partially funded by an $8,000 grant from the 1772 Foundation in cooperation with the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation. Weantinoge matched the grant funds dollar-for-dollar.
The historic farm barns are kept in use by two local farm families: Mayapple Hill Farm and Stuart Family Farm. Click here to see pictures of the work in progress.
