The Agricultural Lands Preservation Act was enacted on July 8, 1991 to conserve, protect, and encourage the improvement of agricultural lands within Delaware for the production of food and other agricultural products. Preservation of the State’s farmlands and forestlands is considered essential to maintaining agriculture as a viable industry and an important contributor to Delaware’s economy. The Act also provided for the creation of the Agricultural Lands Preservation Foundation. The Foundation has been charged with the authority and responsibility of establishing and administering an extensive statewide program to preserve Delaware’s farmlands and forestlands.
