Since our founding in 1980, American Farmland Trust has helped win permanent protection for over a million acres of American farmland. Our hard work and sound strategies unite farmers, environmentalists and policymakers.

We have three strategies for saving America’s farmland:

– Protect the best land through publicly funded agricultural conservation easement programs;

– Plan for growth with agriculture in mind through effective community planning and growth management;

– Keep the land healthy for farmland through encouraging stewardship and

conservations practices.
