Report on land conservation highlights Orange County farm

September 5, 2019by ncdea

VIRGINIA, Culpeper SWCD – A new report is looking at land conservation efforts in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, and it highlights a conservation easement at a local farm.

The report showcases success stories of people who have worked to protect land, including Tom and Kim Nixon, the owners of Glenmary Farm in Orange County.

The Nixons worked with the Piedmont Environmental Council, the Culpeper Soil and Water Conservation District, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service to put 372 acres of their farm into a conservation easement, protecting it from development.

The property is productive farmland as well as riparian protection along the Rapidan River and wildlife habitat.
