The 167-acre Solasz Farm in Winchester, New Hampshire, was recently sold and put under a conservation agreement, according to the Monadnock Conservancy. The farm had belonged to longtime local radio host Al Kulas, and had been in his family since the 1700s. Upon Kulas’s passing, an agreement was reached between neighboring farmers Sam Canonica and Sarah Costa, the Monadnock Conservancy, and Kulas family friend Delorma Morton, who inherited the property. Per the agreement, Canonica and Costa were able to acquire the farmland subject to a conservation easement held by the Conservancy. Thanks to ongoing efforts from the Conservancy and support from an anonymous family foundation, an agreement was reached that stipulated Solasz Farm will never be developed or divided. The Monadnock Conservancy has protected nearly 20,000 acres of forest, farmland, shoreline, wetlands, wildlife habitat, and recreational trails in the region.
