The former landfill, and the farm next door, are in Bedford County.
The farm owners have been battling the county for months, hoping it'll do something to clean up the contamination.
Tonight the Bedford County Board of Supervisors made a final decision to buy the property.

The attorney for the owners, Danny and Jimmy Adams said they will think about the offer. The Bedford County Board of Supervisors agreed to purchase the 150 acre farm for 1 point 3 million dollars. Originally the owners were asking for 1 point 8 million. The question is, is the battle between farmer and county over?

(( Last spring 8 acres of the Adams dairy farm was condemned. The landfill next to their property was closed in 1993 and later began leaking cancer-causing agents in the ground water.
In May the Adams filed a lawsuit against the county claiming they don't have the right to take the land to clean up the mess caused by the landfill.
One supervisor strongly disagreed, saying the county did nothing wrong and should not have to pay for the aftermath.
