In 2015, Langlade County adopted a new Farmland Preservation Plan to help guide farmland preservation activities for the next 10 years. 

Goal of the Farmland Preservation Plan: To promote working forests and farms.

  1. Minimize the conversion of agricultural lands and woodlands into other uses
  2. Encourage retaining large, contiguous, forestry and farmland tracts
  3. Work to preserve farming as a viable occupation within the county
Two program strategies that Langlade County uses to preserve farmland use:
  • Farmland Preservation ZoningRows of potato plants growing in the Antigo Flats.
  • Agricultural Enterprise Areas (AEAs):
    • Antigo Flats
    • Evergreen/Wolf River
