In August 2013, The Land Trust acquired a 96-acre agricultural conservation easement on the Pamma-Larkin property in Butte County near Gridley. The purpose of the agricultural conservation easement is to enable the property, currently a peach orchard, to remain in productive agricultural use by preventing uses of the property that will impair or interfere with its agricultural productive capacity, its soils, and its agricultural character, values, and utility. Funding for the purchase of the agricultural conservation easement was provided by the Department of Conservation’s California Farmland Conservancy Program and the Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Farm and Ranch Lands Protection Program.
