American Farmland Trust (AFT) was founded in 1980 to save America’s farms and ranches. They created the conservation agriculture movement, which speaks for the land—and for the people who grow our food. As the movement’s leaders, they have three priorities: protecting agricultural land, promoting environmentally sound farming practices, and keeping farmers on the land. AFT is the only national agricultural organization that approaches its work in this comprehensive, holistic manner. They recognize the connection between the land, forward-looking farming practices, and the farmers and ranchers who do the work. They also recognize the power of combining on-the-ground projects with objective research and effective advocacy.
