History and Background
June 5, 2026
For over 15 years, Pope Farm Conservancy has been a unique free, open-to-the- public venue dedicated to preserving the land and telling its story. Owners Art and Betty Pope felt so strongly about this vision and mission that they included conditions and restrictive covenants in their sale agreement with the Town of Middleton to protect this vision.
Unfortunately, now the Town of Middleton has openly violated this agreement by retaining a for-profit event marketing company to commercialize the Sunflower Days event the Town is sponsoring.
