From the dairy farms of New England to the "salad bowl" of California, American farms grow nearly every kind of food you and your family could want or need.
But the pressures on our farms are increasing. In many places, farms face water shortages. Extreme weather. Eroding soil. And the crush of development.
All threats to our food supply.
What can we do? Each of us can help – by buying local and by supporting local farmers and farmers markets whenever possible.
At American Farmland Trust, we're focused on the kind of large-scale solutions that can also make a big difference – by supporting family farmers, protecting the land, and helping communities plan for locally grown food.
