Conservation Easements as a Tool to Help Fund Farm Purchase or Development
This session will outline the basics of what a conservation easement is, and how sale of a conservation easement can help farmers access funding to help with acquiring a property, or raise money to invest in a farm business. Chris Cabot and Reeve Wood from MFT will be joined by a farmer who has sold a conservation easement on their property, and who can answer questions about the process and how it has worked for them from the farmer perspective.
