Mark T. and Quimby Mahoney have lived for many years in southeastern Massachusetts, where Mark has a carpentry and construction business.  They wanted to retire to this area to be nearer to one of their daughters and her family, and their search for a new home ended when they found the former Ed Levin property.

The parcel includes a beautiful historic house and cluster of barns, as well as 47 acres of undulating farmland which is leased to a neighboring dairy farmer for crop production.

The Mahoneys had been involved with the Bourne Conservation Trust on Cape Cod where development has forever changed the landscape, and they were eager to take steps to protect their new land.  “We wanted to be sure it could never be chopped up into housing lots,” Mark said.

ASA was delighted to work with Mark and Quimby to achieve their conservation goals.  Their land is adjacent to another 155 acres of conserved farmland belonging to the Hanf family, adding up to over 200 acres of protected land on Route 61 in Jackson.

Currently the Mahoneys are pouring considerable energy into the renovation of their new home and farmstead.  While they do not yet have plans for filling the barns, they have settled on “October Farm” as the name for their new home.

ASA extends a warm welcome to Mark and Quimby Mahoney, as well as a sincere thank you for the donation of the development rights on this property.
