150 Bucks Co Farms Preserved
The Bucks County Commissioners have saved their 150th property under the county’s Farmland Preservation Program. They voted recently to pay nearly $1.3 million for an agricultural easement on the farm owned by Kenneth Bowman and his family on Hill Road in Bedminister Township, along the Tohickon Creek. The family raises corn and hay.
The county and the Pennsylvania Department or Agriculture are each paying nearly half of the cost, and the township is kicking in more than $67,000.
