Protected Lands

Yggdrasil was brought into being by two gifts of land, one in California and one in Wisconsin. Since that time, Yggdrasil received an additional property in Wisconsin and one in New Hampshire. The properties are managed as biodynamic and organic farms under the diligent care of long-term farmer-lessees. Providing families and communities access to farmland through long-term lease tenure is the preservation model that Yggdrasil has practiced since its inception. It has worked with Equity Trust of Turners Falls, Massachusetts, to design long-term lease agreements that incorporate the needs of the farm and the farm’s family or community group. Each property has a unique individuality, from its ecological features and geology to its design and preservation story. The unique qualities of the farmers and communities that call these properties home are woven into the farm’s tapestry as well.
