Reforming the 2014 Farm Bill: Farm Policy for the 21st Century
The 2014 Farm Bill: webinars
Throughout the Farm Bill process, American Farmland Trust worked to move U.S. farm policy forward by:
Strengthening policies, programs, and resources to protect farmland as a strategic national resource
Promoting sound environmental stewardship through advancing adoption of conservation practices
And encouraging the development of a more diverse, healthy, and equitable food system consistent with thriving rural and urban communities.
American Farmland Trust’s key priorities included, protecting programs from extreme funding cuts in a harsh budget environment, reforming farm policy to ensure programs were more effectively delivered at the local level to increase conservation outcomes, and providing new opportunities through programs for beginning farmers, farmers markets and local foods.
