With Thanks to You, 50 Years of Landkeeping Celebrated

September 12, 2017

Over 500 people enjoyed a fun-filled day at Holiday Farm in Dalton on September 9, celebrating BNRC’s 50th anniversary with outdoor activities and time with friends and family.

Thanks to you and the Crane family’s generosity, Holiday Farm remains a working farm, conserved forever. Your gifts ensure that dozens of farms in the Berkshires fill their fields with goats, sheep, horses and chickens, instead of houses.

Your continued support will keep the most iconic landscapes of the Berkshires working and open for all through the next fifty years.
