Easement Eligibility

In order to qualify property must be located in Morgan County and be capable of use for cropland or grazing. Woodlots and wetlands within the farm boundaries are also eligible.

Some commercial activities such as retail sales of farm products, tourism, charitable or educational activities, or home-based business are compatible with easements.

Subject to availability of funds, landowners may be eligible to receive the difference between the fair market value of the land and its value for agricultural production. The sale or donation of a perpetual conservation easement may result in federal income tax benefits.
