Ohio’s Agricultural Easement Purchase Program: A Survey of AEPP Participants Executive Summary

“Ohio’s Agricultural Easement Purchase Program: From Pilot to Permanent Presence” is a survey commissioned by the Ohio Departmen of Agriculture (ODA).

The Clean Ohio Agricultural Easement Purchase Program (AEPP) compensates farmland owners to place an agricultural easement upon their farm with the express goal of preserving Ohio’s valuable farmland for future generations. An agricultural easement is a deed restriction that prohibits any future non-agricultural development. The easement allows for agricultural development and the land itself stays under private ownership. Currently the AEPP is funded at $6.25 million per year.
