Bigfoot Conservation Efforts

Posted on Thursday, November 1, 2018 at 2:34 pm

Bigfoot Adventures at Baggenstoss Farms held an open house on Friday, to celebrate the donation by owner Andy Baggenstoss of 300 acres of the farm’s land to a conservation easement. The easement will protect the land from logging and destruction, while allowing the farm to utilize it in an ecologically sound manner. Andy hopes to carry on the legacy of his great-uncle Herman Baggenstoss who donated much of that land for the creation of the Fiery Gizzard area of the South Cumberland Recreation Area.
