Scenic Ives Farm
The Cheshire Land Trust's First Annual Tractor Trot 5K at Ives Farm is in the history books. On a cool partly cloudy morning 74 runners finished the 3.1 mile course that traversed woodlands, vegetable and hay fields and a section of the Quinnipiac River. The well planned and clearly marked course was cheered by runners who promised to return next year.
