The Morris County Farmland Preservation program began with the permanent preservation of the Cupo Farm, a 14-acre farm in Washington Township, on December 28, 1987.
Since 1987, over 8,200 acres of farmland have been permanently preserved. The “Cumulative Preserved Acres”(PDF, 35KB) chart shows the progress of the Morris County Farmland Preservation effort since 1987. The “Annual Preserved Acres”(PDF, 207KB) chart shows the number of acres that were preserved each year since 1987.
This year, 2023, is the 40th anniversary of the Morris County Agriculture Development Board. We want to celebrate this occasion by illustrating all the farms preserved by the County Easement Purchase Program. Click to view the StoryMap.
