John Nierer Partners With Heritage Conservancy To Protect 14+ Acres In Northampton County

On November 15, the
Heritage Conservancy announced it has partnered with John Nierer to place a conservation easement on the 14+ acre Nierer Farm in Moore Township, Northampton County. 

Preserving this property will ensure permanent protection of prime agricultural soils, wildlife habitat, and unobstructed scenic views of the Kittatinny Ridge.

The entire farm is located within the Kittatinny Ridge Important Bird Area, which serves as a vital habitat for fall migrants. Each year, tens of thousands of raptors and vultures and millions of songbirds utilize this area during their migratory journey!

The owner, John Nierer, sought to preserve his land to eliminate the possibility of future development. 

Several generations ago, John’s family owned over 450 acres of farmland in the Danielsville area. Unfortunately, much of the land had been subdivided and sold off over the following years. 

In 1992, with a deep-rooted love and appreciation for farming, John jumped on the opportunity to buy back 14.7 acres of his original family farm. Now, it will be protected forever.

Fitting with Heritage Conservancy’s mission, Heritage Conservancy is pleased to have helped John in not only preserving his land but preserving his family’s history.
