That's good to hear, especially in Medford. We need a strong buffer zone to protect the Pinelands from Evesham development creep. Now if we can only get more farmland preservation in Indian Mills instead of turning it all into cookie cutter developments.
That farm (originally known as Quoexin) was one of the three Evans and Wills properties. Friendship and Willow Farm (Kings Grant) being the other two. Good to see it preserved. Some of the earliest cranberry bogs in the state were started there!
I've always been curious about big hidden area in the middle of Medford. I used to live very near there in Medford Lakes. I have heard that deals like this have been abused in the past, where it became a way to enrich a landholder that really had no intention of selling the property anyway.
But anything which prevents further wanton development of Medford can't be too bad...
