A key ingredient to any Farm Management Plan is understanding the opportunity for placing a conservation easement on a farm or hunting property.
Conservation easements can offer tax advantages and financial incentives that will make the farm or property more cost effective to operate and protect its habitat resources for the future. The key is understanding what easement opportunities exist, what the benefits of the easements are, and what restrictions the easements include. Not all farms, properties, or landowners will fit with easements, but knowing what programs are out there is a key to creating a comprehensive management plan.
