Farmland Preservation protects valuable farmland and habitat for recreationally important animals, like salmon, birds, deer, and elk. These projects allow families to continue farming the land they have worked on for generations, and provide Washingtonians with healthy local food and a diverse economy. WWRP is the only source of farmland preservation funding in the state budget.
The Methow Conservancy successfully protected the 31.4 acre Anders Orchard, which closed and was recorded on July 31, 2020. The conservation easement protects the land for agriculture in perpetuity.
