Blue Rock Farm in Kulps Corner in Bucks County, co-owned by Carmen and Rita Rocco of Gwynedd Valley, is being preserved in a conservation pact of $1.36 million, writes Frank Kummer for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Four entities have joined forces to ensure the preservation of the 97-acre farm in Bedminster Township, including the state, Bucks County, the township, and Heritage Conservancy.

The farm is owned by Blue Rock Investment comprised of seven Rocco siblings. An unincorporated hamlet known as Kulps Corner is owned by the Gwynedd Valley couple.

The family wanted to move to the farm but that did not work out. So instead they gave Kulps, the previous owners, the rights to continue to work the farm.

The family still continues to visit the farm and are happy it will be preserved.

“He would have loved it if we could have built a family compound there and all lived together with our extended families, but that was not realistic,” said Chip Rocco, son of Carmen and Rita. “This is a wonderful thing that we can do this. I know my Dad is loving it.”
