Explore Our Farms

To date, PCC Farmland Trust has conserved 19 farm properties acres Washington, totaling 2,009 acres. Visit our Protected Farms page to explore regions where we’re active, and to learn more about the individual farms we’ve preserved since 1999.


Pathways to conservationPathways to Conservation

Farmland conservation can be complicated, so we use a variety of different tools, depending on the circumstances.

A Conservation Easement is a voluntary legal agreement by a landowner to ensure that their property is forever protected for agricultural use.

Simultaneous Sale is when a landowner sells a conservation easement at the same time that they sell the property to a new farmer, creating a pathway for farmland succession.

Bridging the Gap is when we buy threatened farmland that is for sale, making it possible for farmers to access affordable land.

To learn more about our approach, or to conserve farmland with us, visit our Conserve Land page.
