Through the Agricultural Land Easement program, the landowner gets paid 75% of the conservation easement value for keeping the country’s best soil and farmland in agriculture.
How can I help save farmland in my community?
Athens Land Trust works with local communities to help identify potential sources of local matching funds and implement an ACEP-ALE program in your county, town, or community.
Athens Land Trust is actively engaged in speaking with farmers and local officials to increase farmland protection throughout the state of Georgia. Learn how farmland contributes to your local community.
