Conserve Your Land

Support the Work of Farmland Conservation

One of the best ways to support the work of farmland conservation in Washington and Rensselaer counties is to get in touch with ASA about the possibility of conserving your own land.

There are many good reasons to consider conserving your land and several options for going about it. Conserving your property can bring significant benefits to you as well as long term benefits to the whole community.

In some cases, you may be entitled to receive tax relief at the state and federal level for donating an easement. If eligible, you could receive money for your sale of development rights.

For the majority of landowners the reason to conserve comes down to a simple but deep love and appreciation for the land and a desire to care for it beyond their lifetime.

Learn more about the conservation options that might be right for you.
