An Auten Road farm property owned by Hillsborough Township, totaling 58.71 acres, was recently put up for public bid, in an effort to further preserve farmland, announced Deputy Mayor Britting, at Tuesday’s Township Committee Meeting.
Going forward this parcel can only be sold and used as farmland, as it now carries a deed restriction.
"It is staying as farmland preserve in deed. It will never be anything but farmland," said Mayor Shawn Lipani at the Feb. 28 meeting.
"This farm must stay a farm into perpetuity," said Britting, Liaison to the Agricultural Advisory Committee. "Land preservation remains a top priority in Hillsborough Township and each parcel preserved and protected from development maintains that goal," said Britting.
The owners of this parcel will begin farming for the spring growing season.
