On March 1, 2010, the Chatham County Board of Commissioners adopted a new Farmland Preservation Plan that includes several components to help retain farmland and boost the county’s agricultural economy. The plan is voluntary and does not require farmers or other residents to participate.

The county’s Agriculture Advisory Board worked with the Chatham County Center of Cooperative Extension Service, the Soil and Water Conservation District and the Triangle Land Conservancy in developing the plan with grant funding from the state’s Agricultural Development and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund.

The Farmland Preservation Plan includes two major sections, one focused on Agricultural Land Use and one focused on Agricultural Economic Development. To read the adopted Farmland Preservation Plan components, see the links below:
