Advocating to protect farmland, keep farmers on the land, and help farmers adopt sound farming practices

American Farmland Trust has deep roots and longstanding experience advocating for policies that support our farmers and protect our farmland.

In New York state, we work with everyday New Yorkers, partner organizations, and champions in government to advance polices that permanently protect farmland, bring a diverse new generation of farmers onto the landconnect kids with healthy New York grown food through farm to school programs, and enable farmers to adopt practices that combat climate change

American Farmland Trust plays a unique role in Albany, conducting and synthesizing the latest research and bringing people and organizations together to advocate for and enact policies that ensure a strong future for farming in New York state.
