Counties preserving the most farmland

Counties preserving the most farmland

There's one sure-fire way to slow development in New Jersey — saving the land we have left.

A few counties in New Jersey figured that out early on and have made a mission out of preserving farmland. Between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018, our state saw more than 5,800 acres of farmland saved from future development. 

According to the New Jersey State Agriculture Development Committee, the state’s total of preserved farmland had risen to 232,500 acres by the June 30, 2018.  

Through its program, the state buys the development rights for the farmland from the owner. 

Five counties saw no additional acres go into the preservation program in the last fiscal year. Those counties were Passaic, Bergen, Camden, Ocean and Atlantic.
 
Three counties in New Jersey have no preserved farmland at all. They are Essex, Hudson and Union counties.
 
Here are the counties with the most preserved farmland in New Jersey:
