The Lehigh County Farmland Preservation Program works with landowners to preserve agricultural land with conservation easements. The program is also known as the purchase of development rights program. Landowners are financially compensated under this voluntary program to perpetually preserve their properties for agricultural production. Over 21,500 acres of farmland have been preserved in Lehigh County.
