SUP Bid Forms and Information Packets


Map of SUP locations The Department of Environmental Protection is putting out to bid Agriculture Special Use Permits on land owned by the Department and managed by the Division of Fish and Wildlife. The Special Use Permits (SUP) will afford more farmers access to agricultural opportunities on State lands. For generations, the Department has worked closely with farmers to the mutual benefit of agriculture, our natural resources, and our resource users.

Each SUP will be effective from March 15, 2019 to December 31, 2020.

Rental values and minimum bids are based on the soil types of each parcel and calculated using the soil rental rates established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Farm Service Agency (FSA), discounted by 20 percent to take into account disadvantages of farming on public land.

The bids are open to all interested farmers. This is a sealed bid process; farmers may submit only one bid per SUP. The SUP will be awarded to the highest bidder. Bids must be received by 3:00 p.m. Friday, March 1, 2019.


Interested farmers should review the material contained in the "Bid Information Package" for each SUP of interest for bidding.
Each bid package contains:

  • A map of the fields included in the Special Use Permit and any in-kind service areas
  • The minimum bid based on current soil rental rates
  • The in-kind service obligations for 2019, if any
  • A copy of the Agriculture SUP that will be signed by the winning bidder
Once the documents in the Bid Information Package have been reviewed, complete and return the "Bid Form" by the deadline stated above. Bid forms can be mailed, hand delivered, or e-mailed to the address listed on the form.

Questions can be addressed to Tyler Kinney at 856-785-0592 or
