The Willistown Township Agricultural Security Area Advisory Board is composed of five members: three active Township farmers, one citizen, and one member of the Board of Supervisors.
Agricultural Security Areas (ASA) are a tool for protecting Pennsylvania agriculture. Farmers work with their municipalities to establish areas where agriculture is the primary activity. The ASA designation shows that farming is a local priority and promotes more permanent and viable farming operations. Local municipalities create ASAs at the request of landowners who agree to collectively place at least 250 acres in an ASA.
