470-Acre Ithaca Horse Farm Conserved Forever for Agricultural, Natural, and Scenic Values
A 470-acre horse farm on Ithaca’s West Hill is now conserved forever. The extensive property is one of the largest remaining privately owned parcels within the town of Ithaca and features extensive fields and woodlands. Landowners Jan and Susan Suwinski grew the farm from an original 62-acre parcel through a series of land purchases. See the Story.
