The only national conservation organization dedicated to protecting farmland, promoting sound farming practices, and keeping farmers on the land.
American Farmland Trust is the nation's leading conservation organization dedicated to saving America’s farm and ranch land, promoting environmentally sound farming practices and supporting a sustainable future for farms. As the vital link among farmers, conservationists and policy-makers, we’re focused on ensuring the availability of the land that provides fresh food, a healthy environment and lasting rural landscapes. Since our founding in 1980 by a group of farmers and citizens concerned about the rapid loss of farmland to development, we've helped to save more than three million acres of farmland and led the way for the adoption of conservation practices on millions more.
Helping farmers and ranchers protect their land from development, produce a healthier environment, and build successful communities. Working to save the land that sustains us.
