In New England, farming takes place alongside a population of almost 15 million people.
Farms have been a part of New England's landscape and history for centuries.
But due to population growth, development and sprawl from our cities, the amount of land left producing food in New England is small – just five percent.
Still, farming has an enduring and important presence in the six-state region – from the dairy farms and maple sugarhouses of Vermont to the cranberry bogs of Massachusetts and blueberry fields of Maine.
Perhaps nowhere else in the country are farms and farmers more endangered.
We are working to save them – for our economy, our way of life and our very ability to feed ourselves.
