Monroe Township resident donates agricultural easement

Monroe Township resident Marie Holscher has donated a permanent agricultural easement on her family’s 42-acre farm to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

This is the first easement donation of its kind in Clermont County and is the 28th state-wide donation of an agricultural easement to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

Holscher recently made the donation to ensure that the farm is never developed for any commercial or non-farm purposes.

“It is important to me that this remains farm land forever,” she said. “It would break my heart if it was developed for any other purpose. This way, it is a comfort to know that whatever happens to me, this beautiful property will remain.”
