1989 Frederic Winthrop, Jr.

Ipswich, Massachusetts

Honoring a lifelong devotion to preserving New England’s valuable farmland and picturesque landscape, our Agricultural Adventurer is recognized nationally for his “Farmland Preservation Act.” This innovative law was the first of its kind, and is designed to ensure the preservation of a most precious commodity – Massachusetts farmland.

A descendant of the distinguished early Massachusetts Winthrop family, our recipient is a firm believer in the education of young people on the importance of Agriculture and is a leader in the “Agriculture in the Classroom” program.
