Farm Preservation

Pennsylvania farmers can voluntarily preserve their agricultural land through a program known as the Agricultural Security Area Program. Before their land can be considered for preservation, famers must obtain an Agricultural Preservation Survey in order to map out the boundary of the agricultural land. We provide the farmer or their representative with a survey map that locates all man-made structures, depicts the property boundary and states the calculated area of the land to be preserved. Farmers may choose to subdivide their land or add-on adjoining parcels before they legally preserve their land. We provide the subdivision mapping and the Lot Add-On plans if necessary. Through farmland preservation, Pennsylvania has protected more farmland than any other state as recognized by the American Farmland Trust.
