Land Trusts

Land trusts are private, nonprofit organizations that provide landowners with a voluntary conservation mechanism to protect their agricultural land.  Many farmers and ranchers wish to continue their productive agriculture activities and a conservation easement, tied to the land in perpetuity, permits them to do so. The Utah Agricultural Land Trust is a Utah-based corporation that is guided by an all-volunteer board of northern Utah residents and is driven by the desire to preserve private agricultural lands in Utah through the creation of conservation easements.   Private landowners who choose conservation easements are motivated to conserve the special features of their property such as productive farm soils, scenic beauty or valuable wildlife habitat.  In some cases, there are tax benefits related to conservation allowing families to remain on the land and pass their farms and ranches on to future generations.  As a land trust serving Utah agricultural landowners, our role is to educate landowners, provide conservation options and help the landowner determine if conservation is the right decision for their family.
