NJ takes steps to keep farmland in the family

Digging up $1.7 million to actually buy a 160-acre spread felt utterly out of reach for Ryan Kocsis and his wife, Kim. They worried a developer might buy the acres. But last year, the Kocsis family applied and qualified for New Jersey’s Farmland Preservation Program. Inspectors checked them out and approved $1.1 million to help buy the farm and place it under ironclad deed restrictions: the Perpetual Harvest Farm will perpetually remain a farm. https://www.njtvonline.org/news/video/nj-takes-steps-keep-farmland-family
