A long-time family goal comes to fruition

At the end of 2016 Ronnie Pronio placed a conservation easement on approximately 27 acres of the 145-acre Pronio Family Farm, protecting it from future subdivision and development. A long-time and thoughtful process by the family has come to fruition with this first step. The eased portion of the farm is open land, includes a tributary to the Manada Creek, and also a scenic portion of the Horse-Shoe Trail, which is open to the public except during hunting season. It is a beautiful, rolling landscape, with a ravine and wooded area. The farm is not far from route 39, in an area that has seen unprecedented development over the last few years, and the continued loss of farmland.
The Pronio family intends to place most of the remaining acreage under a conservation easement as well, and we are looking forward to working with them to conserve this valuable agricultural land, habitat and open space for future generations. This is a legacy of which Vincent Pronio would have been proud, and we are very grateful to Ronnie, to Mike and to Lorna, and all of the family for their vision.
