Celebrating 75000 Acres Preserved & Growing
Oct 16 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Carroll County’s Agricultural Land Preservation effort is the most successful in the State of Maryland, preserving more farms and more acres through the purchase of land preservation easements than any other county in Maryland.  Carroll County’s program also ranks among the nation’s top five similar programs administered by local governments in the United States.  Operating since 1980, the Carroll program has preserved more than 740 farms encompassing over 75,500 acres.

In 2020, Carroll County reached the milestone of 75,000 acres preserved. This is 75% of its 100,000-acre goal.  To celebrate the occasion, the Fall Harvest Celebration at the Farm Museum will feature a ceremony, a bus tour of nearby preserved farms, other related special attractions. An educational campaign will accompany the event promoting the benefits of preservation to the community and the importance of public support for “growing” preserved land acreage to attain the remaining 25,000 acres. The celebration will be held on Saturday, October 16, 2021, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Carroll County Farm Museum and is free to the public.  A special ceremony will be held at 12:30 PM.  More details will be provided at a future date and can be found on the Celebrating 75,000 Acres Preserved & Growing website.

The bus tour will be offered on a first come, first served basis.  Participants must register for this FREE tour.  Visit the Celebrating 75,000 Acres Bus Tour webpage for more information and to register.
