American Farmland Trust
President, Andrew McElwaine


Since our founding in 1980 by a group of farmers and citizens concerned about the rapid loss of farmland to development, we’ve led the effort to make farmland conservation a public priority, an item on every state’s agenda and a key element of national farm policy. In this arena, American Farmland Trust’s record of accomplishment is matched by no other organization — our work has helped to ensure that more than five million acres of farm and ranch land stay healthy and productive forever.
