in Portage County
ortage County has been losing, on average, the equivalent of ten 100-acre farms per year. The pattern of development—road frontage, five acre or larger lots, scattered in open fields—have eroded our farmland and open spaces and are contributing to the loss of Portage County's rural character.
Portage County's Farmland Task Force has been one of the most active and successful organizations in preserving Ohio farmland. They reach out to the community and answer the why and how questions of farm conservation as well as talk about the economic impact of protecting the county's farmland.
