Description & History

Meetinghouse Farm is located within a part of Cumberland known for its working farmland, prime agricultural soils, and scenic open space.  With ever-present development pressures in town, the Stockly family placed an easement on the property to ensure that it will remain forever in its intact, largely undisturbed state.  The easement allows the land to continue to be used for agriculture and natural resource management as well as low impact outdoor recreation, however no public use of the property is permitted at present. This property abuts another 50-acre parcel in Yarmouth protected with a conservation easement, creating a significant block of agricultural land and scenic views.
