The Purchase of Agricultural Conservation Easement Corporation (PACE) was established by the Kentucky General Assembly in 1994. The General Assembly authorized the Commonwealth of Kentucky to protect valuable farmland. The loss of valuable Farmland is at an alarming rate in the nation including in the beautiful Commonwealth. Farmland in the PACE Program is protected by an agricultural conservation easement that protects the land in perpetuity. The PACE Program is an affiliate of Kentucky Department of Agriculture but is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board of Directors consist of one member from the six congressional districts (appointed by Governor), one member from Kentucky Farm Bureau Federation (appointed by Governor), Commissioner of Agriculture, Secretary of Energy and Environment Cabinet, Dean, University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food, and Environment, Chair of Soil and Water Conservation Commission. The four private respectively may have a proxy represent them on their behalf. To find out who serves on the PACE Board of Directors, click the link below.
