Good news for Smryski Farm’s white barns. Weantinoge has been awarded an $8,000 grant for exterior repairs to these historic structures that are used by Mayapple Hill Farm and Stuart Family Farm, LLC.

The Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation worked with the 1772 Foundation to vet projects and awarded grants to 23 organizations. Investing in the barns ensures that they can continue to be used for agriculture and preserves the rural character of Merryall Road.
