Dauphin County’s farm-preservation effort hit the 10,000-acre mark last week, when the owners of a 76-acre Jackson Township farm entered their land into the state’s Agricultural Conservation Easement Purchase Program.

The county paid David and Tena Kieffer $113,940 to enter the cattle-and-crop farm into the program. The program permits state and county governments to purchase development rights from farm owners to protect farmland.

The county has preserved 101 farms totaling 10,464 acres since 1992, the county commissioners said in a written statement.
