I was in Derby this weekend and read the article. From what I understand the City of Newport is trying to tell this farmer what to do with some older buildings on his property and he is P###ed. If I remember right he has approximately 1400 acres of land that he has shut down and according to what he is saying there are miles and miles of VAST trails that go thru it. He owns the Mead Farm. I hope the city backs off and he lets us back on. There is going to be a hearing in Sept might be a good idea to show support for the farmers.
