Do you own a farm in Montgomery County? Would you like to learn about a program for preserving farmland? The Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (LAEPP) provides funding to farmland owners for placing an agricultural easement on their property. This voluntary easement is a legally binding restriction placed on a farm that will forever protect your farmland from development. The Montgomery Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD), a local sponsor for this program, would love to work with you to protect your farm. This very competitive program pays farmers for their easements. In Montgomery County, nearly 4,000 acres of farmland have been protected since 2002.
If you would like to learn about this program, RSVP to Holly Buchanan, sffice secretary at [email protected] or (937) 854-7646 ext. 0519 for more information about the meeting or the program, or visit the Farmland Preservation section of the Ohio Department of Agriculture website.
