Kristoferson Farm – Working Farmland

Category Overview

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.

Project Highlights

The Whidbey Camano Land Trust will use this funding to place a perpetual working farm conservation easement on approximately 80 acres of the Kristoferson Farm on Camano Island. A total of five development rights will be acquired. The primary benefit of this project is the preservation of working farmland.
