Current Owners of Preserved Farms
Navigate to page:
This page is intended to provide resources for owners of preserved farms.
All construction or impacts to soil on a preserved farm must be approved by the Department of Agriculture following receipt of an Application to Construct, which details the owner’s plans. Individual PDR deeds contain limits to impacts on prime soil, arable land, and/or overall acreage. The Application to Construct is sometimes used as a "catch-all" approval form for activities on a PDR property. To ensure compliance, if in doubt, submit the Application to Construct or contact us below!

A seller must notify the Connecticut Department of Agriculture no more than 90 days before an impending sale or transfer of the property. This allows us to update our contact information for stewardship purposes and ensure new owners understand the specifics of their PDR deed.
