American Farmland Trust along with its partners, Connecticut Land Conservation Council and Connecticut Farmland Trust, recently completed its Model Agricultural Easement project – funded through an Agricultural Viability grant provided by the Connecticut Department of Agriculture.
The goal of the project was to improve understanding among attorneys and conservation entities about the challenges and opportunities of farming protected land and the important ways conservation easements differ from agricultural easements. The tools and resources developed through this project will provide important guidance to a variety of conservation entities throughout the state when drafting agricultural easements.
