After what seemed like months of eager anticipation, today's closing on the Fancy Farm finally arrived. It was good to meet members of the Fancy family and hear of their excitement that the farm would come back to life. It was also a time for the community to celebrate the contributions of Scarborough township, the Maine Farmland Trust, and the Scarborough Land Conservation Trust in arranging the conservation easement that would both preserve the agricultural land and make the property more affordable to a farmer.
