Preserving Farmland

By Sarah Goebel | 

Some Kentucky farmland is in limbo after a state program that preserves land has run out of money.

The program coordinator of the Purchase of Agricultural Conservation Easement program says it's at least a few years away from receiving more cash.

Kentucky lawmakers created the program called Pace in 1994 with the aim of keeping farmland available for agriculture use and for preserve the state's farming heritage.

As part of the program landowners agree they won't develop their land and in turn they receive a compensation or tax breaks.
