We protect farmland from development while helping farmers implement practices that bolster environmental and economic viability.
We work with local, county, and state governments, private foundations, and individual landowners to:
- preserve agricultural lands
- prepare farm conservation plans
- and help farmers implement best management practices.
Agricultural best management practices help keep valuable soils in place, reduce the need for chemical fertilizers and minimize water-polluting runoff, ultimately improving sustainability and profitability of the farm operation.
