We’re working hard to save the Farm

While the weather at times has been frightful, a core group of the Upton Farm Preservation Network Network continues to meet weekly. We have had discussions with provincial and city officials about the future of the Upton Farmlands, and we were keen observers of the Canada Lands presentation concerning the future of the Dominion Building on Queen Street in downtown Charlottetown.

Please keep in mind that the Upton Farmlands are not saved nor protected yet. There is merely a moratorium on development. We depend on your support as discussions with various officials continue.

On another note, if you’re in the mood (and the weather EVER cooperates) for a winter walk or snowshoe, with or without your four-legged friend, keep Upton Farm in mind. It has rolling hills for those who want a real workout and lots of straight paths for those who prefer more gentle exercise.

Winter Sunset Upton Farm

The weather may be cold, but if you bundle up and join the many walkers at Upton Farm near sunset, you’ll be treated to views like this as the sun drops below the horizon over the North River. Bring your puppy along with you to enjoy a romp with the other dogs, many of whom are regular visitors (along with their owners!) at this time of day.
