Office of Farmland Preservation


The Office of Farmland Preservation (OFP), a program within the Washington State Conservation Commission, works to address the rapid loss of working farm and forest lands in our state.

What we do:

  • Support and sponsor agricultural conservation easements.
  • Assist localities as they develop and implement measures to retain agricultural lands.
  • Provide resources to assist with the transition of farmland and related business from one generation to the next.
  • Provide data and analysis on trends impacting farms in Washington.
