The Hunterdon County Board of Chosen Freeholders at their July 7th meeting approved preservation of two farms with cooperation from the Hunterdon Land Trust. It will be accomplished using both state and federal preservation funds
which will add 75 more acres to the County’s Farmland Preservation inventory.
Freeholder Director Shaun C. Van Doren
Preserving farmland in the County remains a front burner issue for the Freeholder Board. And finding funding partners to take on 100% of the costs is a real bonus for the taxpayers. These preservation projects add to the total of preserved farmland in the County beyond 34,000 acres."
Hunterdon County has preserved the second most farmland in New Jersey and has preserved the most farms of all the counties in the state.
