Privately Conserved Lands

Together, farming and ranching are one of the cornerstones of Santa Barbara County’s economy—providing world famous local food, jobs, stunning views, and in some cases, protecting wildlife habitat and biodiversity for a more resilient climate. Our agricultural easements ensure prime farmland is kept open for agricultural use and prevent its conversion into residential or commercial development. The following farms, ranches, and open spaces remain private and permanently protected by conservation easements with lasting community benefits for present and future generations.
