The Johnson Farm WMA is located in the Northeast Kingdom along the Connecticut River. The WMA is part of the former Johnson Farm which encompassed a total of 1,023 acres along over six miles of Connecticut River shoreline. The Johnson Farm is notable for its significant habitat diversity, its long and scenic Connecticut River frontage, and abundance of significant natural features. It is also a large, productive and well-known dairy farm which plays an important role in the local economy. The agricultural lands are interspersed with high quality oxbow wetlands, scrub-shrub swamps, emergent marshes, and floodplain forests.
