Saving Small Farms for the Future

November 28th, 2012
Laughing Duck Farm | Blog

    Creating agricultural easements or wildlife easements on small farm and ranch land not only helps offset the cost of the land now, they help future farmers and ranchers. They protect that land for the future from development, similar to preserving historical buildings.

    Farm land is being lost too quickly. It is a rich part of our heritage that should not only be preserved, but worked in the future. 

    Farms are living ecosystems that need to stay productive, viable, and sustainable to survive and teach generations to come. 

    With so many people living in town not growing their own food, they need to have small farms in their communities where they can go and reconnect with the land, the farmer, and their food.

    Community Supported Agriculture - CSA is a way for communities to embrace their local farms and invest in their future by create nurturing relationships.
