Bill Silberstein and Hanna Gustafsson Assist With Conversion of Lewis Family Investments' Farm to a Teaching Farm

December 15, 2022


Firm lawyers Bill Silberstein and Hanna Gustafsson assisted client Lewis Family Investments in converting its farm located near Berthoud, Colorado to a teaching farm. A conservation easement was conveyed to the Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust (CCALT) and the farm was conveyed to The Trust for Public Land. The Colorado FFA Foundation is expected to take full ownership and management of the Lewis Heritage Farm within the year and  will operate the site as an immersive agricultural experience for youth and the public. This extraordinary transaction took over four years of patient planning and execution and drew on the real estate and conservation law knowledge and experience of the firm’s lawyers.
