The foundation for healthy communities

The foundation for American Farmland Trust's work lies in our state and local level activities and involvement across the country.

AFT has been instrumental in developing the many successful state and local policy initiatives that focus on farmland protection and local food systems. States such as New Mexico, Texas, Georgia, Virginia and Hawaii recently created new farmland protection programs, while others such as Connecticut signed new funding for a program into law. Many of the 28 state-level, and more than 60 local-level, farmland protection initiatives and programs in place around the country have been assisted by AFT—from Pennsylvania's state-level farmland protection program, which today is the most successful of its kind in the nation, to the winning campaign for farmland protection funding in Acme Township, Michigan.
