PCC Farmland Trust’s primary mechanism for securing farmland is to purchase or hold organic agricultural conservation easements. These easements are written by the Trust, restrict development, and guarantee organic agricultural use in perpetuity. In the past, the Trust has also purchased titles and leased property back to farmers. If you are interested in learning more about how easements work, please see our easement reference page.
We also make sure that there are farmers on the farmland that we preserve. If you are an interested farmer, or a landowner wanting to learn more about how to work with the Farmland Trust, please visit our Work With Us section.
