LEHIGH COUNTY – Rep. Milou Mackenzie (R-Lehigh/ Montgomery/Northampton) today is pleased to announce an investment to protect a 33-acre horse farm in the 131st Legislative District, the Elizabeth LaFrenz farm in Lower Milford Township.
“I am very grateful for this investment in my district and the state, as it’s crucial we protect our precious farmland,” Mackenzie said. “The preservation of this equestrian farm will help to maintain our beautiful way of life in the Lehigh Valley.”
The farmland preservation program allows landowners to sell their land's development rights to preserve their farms and protect the land from future residential, commercial or industrial development. Farm families often sell their land at below market value to ensure it will remain farmland forever. Pennsylvania partners with county and sometimes local governments and nonprofits to purchase development rights, ensuring a strong future for farming and food security.
