Owners Jack and Betsy Gay van Nagell placed a total of 950 acres of prime Brookfield farmland under conservation easement with the Bluegrass Land Conservancy and the LFUCG Purchase of Development Rights Program. With these easements, the van Nagells led the way in creating a block of protected land in this part of Central Kentucky.
With Brookfield’s rich soils, pristine wildlife habitats, and historic assets, the farm significantly contributes not only to the community at large, but also the “Upper & Middle Reaches of Boone Creek National Historic District”—which constitutes one of the largest historic districts in the United States.
Brookfield’s strong commitment to farmland preservation promotes our endangered Bluegrass landscape, general agriculture, and environmental stewardship for generations to come in Fayette and Clark County, Kentucky.
We are proud of this legacy, and remain committed to excellence and loving the land…everyday.
