CSRLT Success Story:
Saving the Family Farm
For nearly a decade, Dave and Carrie Welter have been keeping history alive on their family farm in Statesboro, Georgia. Each year, they host traditional barn dances and sugar cane harvest parties, offering the community a rare glimpse into traditional southern farm life. And now, thanks to a partnership with the Land Trust, the farm, along with its history, will be preserved forever. “Sharing”, Carrie says, “is why we do it.” And we are so glad that they do. Without the passion of families like the Welters, so much of our land’s rich cultural fabric would unravel, and might one day be lost altogether.
