About the Award

There are farmers throughout America who view protecting agricultural land as more than a worthwhile goal—it's a lifelong commitment. These farmers not only lead by example on their own farms, but they actively work to promote land stewardship at the community and state levels.

To recognize these individuals, American Farmland Trust (AFT) established the Steward of the Land Award. The award recognized the American farmer or farm family who best demonstrated leadership in protecting farmland and caring for the environment.

The award honors the memory of Peggy McGrath Rockefeller, an avid farmer and conservationist who helped found AFT.

American Farmland Trust is not currently awarding the Steward of the Land Award. We hope to do so again in the future. In the meantime, be inspired by the stories of AFT's first twelve Stewards of the Land, and check back on our website for more information.
