About this Location

The largest project of the Egremont Land Trust was the purchase of 445 acres on Baldwin Hill in 2012. This was a longstanding priority for Egremont Land Trust (ELT) and Berkshire Natural Resources Council (BNRC). Thanks to the generosity of the Burdsall and Proctor families, and with the help of the Massachusetts Agricultural Preservation Restriction Program and BNRC, this land was conserved after many years of work. It will be used forever for farming. Critical to the project were donations from more than 400 ELT members and other residents of our area of the Berkshires, which helped to fill the gap between the state’s commitment and the fair market value, the so-called “local share.” The Baldwin Hill projects ensure a productive agricultural base for the town and have saved the most wonderful views in the Southern Berkshires.
