Enfield lawmakers: State $$ will help

Urbanowicz Farm recover from summer flooding

ENFIELD – State lawmakers congratulated Urbanowicz Farm in Enfield on receiving Farmland Restoration Flood Response Grant Program funding from the Connecticut Department of Agriculture to help recover from excessive rainfall in July.

The awards provide matching funds to farmers, nonprofits, and municipalities who were impacted by the flooding and will support bringing these lands back into agricultural production.

“The July flooding created significant challenges for Connecticut farmers,” Sen. John A. Kissel said. “This funding will enable this local business to make necessary on-site improvements and continue its important contributions to our area economy.”

“It is always great when we can help our local farmers, especially after it’s been such a devastating year for them weatherwise,” Rep. Carol Hall said. “I’m sure these funds will provide much needed assistance in their efforts to erase some of the damage these heavy rains may have caused.”

“Keeping farms in business is in everyone’s best interest, especially under extreme conditions,” Rep. Tom Arnone said. “A big thank you goes to the Connecticut Department of Agriculture for their invaluable support and ensuring the survival of Enfield farmers and their crucial work.”
