Nearly 800 acres of rich farmland in the Lompoc Valley have been protected from development through a $1.5 million deal between the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County, the Trust for Public Land, and the Jordan family, which has owned the property since 1974 and currently farms flowers, broccoli, cauliflower, artichokes, and brussels sprouts. The agreement erases all 11 legal parcels while maintaining the Jordans’ right to build two agricultural structures on the property, bordered on the north by the Santa Ynez River and on the west by Vandenberg Air Force Base.
