The Sudbury Conservation Commission is soliciting proposals for the agricultural use of several fields on three town-owned conservation lands in Sudbury.  Proposals may be submitted for one or more of these fields.  Fields are as follows:


Field #1

Dutton Road at Carding Mill Pond                             Approximately 4 Acres


Field #2

Lincoln Meadows South & Root Cellar                    Approximately 14 Acres


Field #3

Piper Farm fields off Fieldstone Farm Road          Approximately 3 – 7 Acres


The proposals for the use of these fields must be submitted by 5:00pm on Monday, July 29, 2013 to the Conservation Commission at 275 Old Lancaster Road, or the Town Clerk at Town Hall, Concord Rd., Sudbury MA.


Information regarding the available parcels may be obtained from the Conservation Commission at 978-443-2209 x1370.  Call if you wish to inspect the properties prior to bidding.


The successful proposal will result in the negotiation of a License Agreement for a term of up to five years with an option to renew for additional five year periods, up to 20 years maximum, at the discretion of the Conservation Commission.  The successful proposal will offer both a monetary payment to the Town as well as improvements to the agricultural capability of the land. Organic farming practices are preferred.  In addition, the intensity of the farming shall take into account the abutting land uses. 

The Town reserves the right to reject any and all proposals, or any portion of any proposal submitted in response to this Request for Proposal.
