For 40 years American Farmland Trust has led the conservation agriculture movement.
We’ve saved farmland, advanced better farming practices, and supported farmers and ranchers.
Yet farming is not moving in the right direction fast enough. America is losing 2,000 acres of farmland every day.
By 2040, we will double the amount of permanently protected farmland, and reduce the current loss by 75%, adopt regenerative practices at scale, so that agriculture captures more carbon that it emits, and help 600,000 new farmers and ranchers get started and succeed.
Our work is essential to the future American agriculture, and the future of American agriculture will determine the future of our planet. The future of farming is our future, and that future hinges on what we do next.
