Freeholders Act To Preserve Agricultural Use Of Nearly 500 Acres of Hunterdon County Farmland
The Hunterdon County Freeholder Board took action Tuesday evening to approve the preservation of seven county farms, totaling 494 acres, and to seek over $3 million in farmland preservation funding from the State Agriculture Development Committee.

Freeholder Director John E. Lanza said, “As I have stated at previous Freeholder meetings, the preservation of farmland in our county is a priority focus of the Freeholder Board. Placing these acres beyond the reach of development is important to maintaining Hunterdon County’s rural character, farmland preservation goals, and other key strategies to retain agriculture in the county.”
