acres of farmland and ranchland are lost each year

Since 1980

American Farmland Trust launched the conservation agriculture movement. We have helped permanently protect over 6.5 million acres of farmland and ranchland, and reduced development pressure on over 300 million additional acres. We have championed environmentally sound farming practices that are now used on farms of all sizes across the nation. We've had a positive impact on over 500,000 farmers and ranchers. And on everyone who eats!
