Sean Walter brings almost two decades of experience working with local governments and the agricultural community to preserve and protect farmland and open space. One of Mr. Walter’s first tasks as a Riverhead Deputy Town Attorney was to acquire for preservation, the development rights on 1,000 acres of farmland.
Preserving farmland ensures a way of life on the east end of Long Island that was lost to the towns to the west. Farmers were the first environmentalists because their way of life and their family’s futures rested on how they maintained the environment.
When you think of farmland preservation, think of our firm. We bring the experience and creativity necessary for the challenges that lay ahead for the farming community when it comes to the sale of development rights and conservation easements.
