Farming Is Our Future

The future of farming hinges on what we do next.

Our Campaign for the Future

The future of everyone on earth today, and everyone yet to be born, depends on farming. Read more about what's at stake and how we plan to protect farmland, promote sound farming practices, and keep farmers on the land.

American Farmland Trust created a movement that has protected millions of acres of agricultural land and improved farming practices on millions more, while supporting our nation’s primary conservation stewards: our farmers and ranchers.

As we launch our campaign for the future, we commit to bold, achievable—and necessary—goals.

By 2040, we will double the amount of permanently protected farmland and reduce current loss by 75%, adopt regenerative practices at scale so that agriculture captures more carbon than it emits, and help 600,000 new farmers and ranchers get started and succeed.

Learn more about this work—and how you can help.

American agriculture faces new challenges that dwarf those of the past. American Farmland Trust’s holistic approach—connecting Land, Practices and People—uniquely positions us to respond.
