stumbled upon a gem of a website that is a wonderful resource if you own, work and manage a farm, the American Farmland Trust. In a nutshell, AFT commits to saving American farms and ranches by creating a network of wise use of agricultural and environmental resources, advocating an active growing local, buying local outreach, promoting a federal farm policy, dealing with state-by-state issues and programs, and overall, by enabling stewardship of our land. In essence, AFT is keeping farmers on their land and protecting the environment.
America loses an acre of land to development. That's staggering, if you consider the equation: no farms, no food.
I heartily recommend the American Farmland Trust website, because it is one of the best I have seen of its kind, it is user friendly, and contains a wealth of associated sites with drop-down menus, so there is something for everyone. Check it out, please, and become a friend of farmland.
