The map is an element of the County’s Master Plan; as such, any changes to it require adoption by both the Hunterdon County Planning Board and the Board of County Commissioners.

Adopted by the Hunterdon County Planning Board: December 3, 2020

American Farmland Trust (AFT)

The American Farmland Trust (AFT) has just issued its multi-year study on farmland loss across the nation during the period of 2001-2016 (link here: “Farms Under Threat: The State of the States” ).  Importantly, the study evaluates and ranks each state's policy response to farmland loss in order to identify the policies and programs that are most important and effective in ensuring farmland protection. New Jersey earned the TOP RANK  of all of the states in the country for its policies related to farmland protection! (Scorecard is hereAgricultural Land Protection Scorecard ). This recognition is a great achievement for the state and is a reflection of the New Jersey's 35+ year history of supporting farmland preservation by many administrations, legislators, local governments, voters, and the farming community combined.
