Help Preserve Messer Farm

We need your help!  New Hampshire is losing working farms at an alarming rate, but Ausbon Sargent has the opportunity to save one of New London’s finest.  We have an agreement to purchase the 143-acre Messer Farm on Little Sunapee Road.  To complete this project, we need to raise $1.6M.  This sounds daunting, but with the help of many, it is possible.  Please help us to preserve the rural character of our community by protecting these scenic fields and woodlands.

Ausbon Sargent Accepts Ownership of the Cassey Brook Preserve in Wilmot

On February 13, Ausbon Sargent took ownership of this 201-acre property on Wilmot Center Road in Wilmot.  Of the 152 properties that Ausbon Sargent has assisted in protecting, this represents the sixth that they will fully own.

The Cassey Brook Preserve is primarily forested, but also has wetland, and trails to open areas and scenic views.  Due to its size and location, it is considered to be a valuable wildlife habitat.  Take a walk on the property as it will always remain open for low-impact recreation.
