Preserved Farms Resource Center
It’s not enough to preserve Pennsylvania farmland – we need to ensure that future generations are ready and able to continue working our land. That is the mission of the new Preserved Farms Resource Center.
The center facilitates business succession and planning for Pennsylvania’s growing number of preserved farms, currently numbering over 5,000. It complements the work of the bureau and the Pennsylvania State Agricultural Land Preservation Board, which focuses on safeguarding the best farmland throughout the state that is under development pressure. The center focuses on providing support following the act of preservation.
The center is focused on planning for estates, transition and succession, and farm viability and businesses by building teams of discussion facilitators, accountants, financial planners, lenders, conservation and nutrient management planners, and veterinarians who can provide expertise in the process.
