On AgDay this morning, a Palisade, Colo. farmer talks about how conservation easements have worked for his property and situation. (Mirr Ranch Group’s own Tommy Latousek handled the conservation easement transactions that protected this family’s orchard when he was a Land Protection Manager with Mesa Land Trust of Grand Junction, Colo.) The Land Trust Alliance (LTA) is advising to hurry and place these easements before the end of the year to take advantage of the current tax incentive.
In related news, Congress is trying to pass the new farm bill before the end of the year, and LTA is pushing for the current conservation easement tax incentive to be included.
