Yesterday, Lancaster Farmland Trust staff preserved a 111 acre Old Order Amish farm in Salisbury Township. The farm is home to a conventional dairy operation with 50 head of cattle.
This large farm has over 5,100 feet of road frontage and is near the border of Lancaster and Chester Counties. There are 13 other preserved farms within a two-mile radius of the property.
The Trust has now preserved 449 farms and 27,700 acres of Lancaster County farmland.
