Another Seneca County Farm Protected Forever
Black Swamp Conservancy is pleased to announce that it has entered into a new permanent farmland preservation agreement with a Seneca County family. This agricultural easement will ensure that the 258 acre farm, just north of Tiffin, will be devoted exclusively to agriculture, forever.
While a majority of the farm is used for grain production, several acres are utilized as pasture for Angus beef cattle – a first for the Conservancy. The property also contains more than 40 acres of woods.
“We are excited to have pasture raised beef on one of our protected properties,” said Chris Collier, the Conservancy’s land protection specialist. “We look forward to working with additional landowners in the future who have similar operations.”
This addition of this farm brings Black Swamp Conservancy’s total acreage protected to 14,431 acres. The Conservancy currently holds more than 100 conservation easements in 13 northern Ohio counties.
