We currently have five easements under our stewardship, and one in the works. The map provided shares the name of the farmer we partnered with and the acreage associated with each.
How We Help our Partners and Community
Allowing your farm to be under an easement it creates an affordable option for young farmers trying to break into the field, or your own family by easing tax burdens. This succession plan creates piece of mind for farmers who would like their properties to remain thriving farms for generations to come.
Disallowing incompatible land uses such as misplaced housing, warehouses, and other detrimental development activities in our countryside allows everyone, city-folk and country-dwellers alike, to enjoy the beautiful scenery that our rural lands provide.
Allowing your farm to be under an easement it creates more latitude for your business by allowing tax burdens to ease. Also thriving farmland creates secondary economic impacts by increasing demand for goods in rural towns.
Allowing the lines to blur between countryside and urban areas creates unsustainable and wasteful land uses. We want to protect those very vulnerable farms on the periphery of our local cities to stop furthering congestion, pollution, and degradation of our countryside in and around Southern Indiana.
