“American Farmland Trust commends the House and Senate Agriculture Committee leadership and staff on their tireless work to reach a bipartisan compromise on the Farm Bill. We look forward to further analyzing the contents of the bill as additional information is available. We are encouraged by this important step towards a final 2018 Farm Bill that will provide certainty and support to our farmers and ranchers and resources to protect the agricultural land that sustains us.”
