The APR program preserves and protects agricultural land, including designated farmland soils, which are a finite natural resource, from being built upon for non-agricultural purposes or used for any activity detrimental to agriculture. It is a voluntary program which offers a non-development alternative to farmers and other owners of "prime" and "state important" agricultural land who are faced with a decision regarding future use and disposition of their farms.
The program offers to pay farmers the difference between the "fair market value" and the "agricultural value" of their farmland, in exchange for a permanent deed restriction which prevents uses of the property that will have a negative impact on its agricultural viability.
Landowners with at least five-acres of land in agricultural production for the last two years and with suitable soils.
