Farmland Preservation Forum

Farmers and landowners wishing to preserve their land for future generations will want to attend a special program being organized by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Experts from NCDA&CS, the United States Department of Agriculture, Soil and Water Districts, NC Farm Bureau, NC State University, and land trust organizations will be on hand to educate and answer questions at this session.

The morning program will be devoted to helping landowners better understand whether a conservation easement makes sense for their personal situation, and tips on transitioning farms to the next generation. Topics will include the Voluntary Agriculture District Program, the Present Use Value Program, and other options available for conservation easement. Legal experts will be on hand to participate in a panel to answer questions.

The session on February 5, 2020, will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the James Martin Building, which is located just inside the main entrance to the Southern Farm Show. Thanks to Farm Credit, attendees will be treated to a BBQ lunch following the session. For more information and to register as an attendee go to the website and click the Farm Show Working Lands Workshop tap. If you have questions for discussion by the experts, please email them to
