As much joy as the beautiful farmland brings to her life, Margaret Grigg simply could not stand the thought of it ever being developed. She loves watching the cattle gather in the fields, the birds commuting between the forest and the ponds and the daily surprise of new blooms adorning her ornate flower gardens. That’s why she enlisted the help of The LandTrust to ensure that future generations will always be able to enjoy this gorgeous property much as it is today. By donating a conservation easement that will permanently guard against such development, she’s now protected these 55 acres she holds so dear. As Margaret so subtly suggests, “I just wanted to do my part.”

The Grigg Farm is primarily pastureland worked by a local farmer. The rolling topography provides picturesque views of the southern Stanly County landscape. In the bottomlands, Little Long Creek drains towards its conjecture with the Rocky River. These characteristics make for a beautiful piece of farmland that The LandTrust is happy to help Margaret protect.
