Morris County is nestled amid rolling hills, broad valleys, and glittering lakes. We're about 30 miles northwest of New York City. Morris County is New Jersey’s seventh-largest county. We're home to the world headquarters of name-brand firms and major shopping markets. We also have three universities, a two-year County College, and a County Vocational Technical School.
The Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders (now County Commissioners) created the Morris County Agriculture Development Board (CADB) in 1983. The board was formed to oversee the farmland preservation program. The program enabled the County to offer farm owners the opportunity to preserve their farms while continuing to own and maintain them. Since its creation, the CADB has had 31 volunteer members.
