The race to purchase Hurricane Valley Farm is on!
The nonprofit Falmouth Land Trust has just secured the rights to purchase Hurricane Valley Farm (currently known as Capall Creek Farm). Located in West Falmouth off of Gray Road (Routes 26/100) at the Falmouth/Cumberland border, this scenic property consists of 62 acres of open fields, farmland and wetlands. The project strives to preserve one of the best remaining examples of Falmouth’s rural character. The land is currently approved for a 17-house subdivision but recent conversations with owner Kevin Smith led to the Trust signing a purchase and sale agreement which would permanently protect this landmark property.
