Agricultural Enterprise Areas
Local communities can voluntarily pursue designation of an “agricultural enterprise area” (AEA) by submitting a petition to the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP). Through this designation, the community can encourage continued agricultural production and investment in the agricultural economy.
Farmers within designated AEAs are eligible to enter into voluntary farmland preservation agreements to collect the farmland preservation tax credits.
