Owners who think their farm may be eligible for one of the programs can download the application at the link below. This application can be used for any of the programs administrated by Carroll County. The completed application can be submitted to the Carroll County Agricultural Land Preservation Program office.

Applications are accepted year-round, although it may be held until a new cycle or fiscal year. If the property lies within a Rural Legacy Area, the application can be considered immediately if grant funding is available.

If you own a smaller farm, particularly if it adjoins another preserved farm, and you think it may be eligible, contact the Ag Pres Program staff to discuss your options.
