RICHMOND — Ice House Hill Farm, an iconic area known for its natural scenic beauty, has been forever protected.

Berkshire Natural Resources Council and the farm's owners reached a deal to place the farm into the Massachusetts Conservation Restriction program, according to a release from the council.

The farm, home to a herd of Hereford cattle, was once part of the larger Malnati Farm holdings, most of which were previously placed into conservation, the release stated.
