The Montgomery Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) is proud to be a Local Sponsor for the Local Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (LAEPP). Through it, farmland owners are provided funding to place an agricultural easement on their property. The easement is a voluntary and legally binding restriction placed on a farm that will forever protect the farmland from development. The Montgomery SWCD would love to work with you to protect your farm. For more information, please contact our office or visit the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
