Mission Statement

Vigorously accelerate permanent protection and stewardship of farmland

Description

We envision our farms, soil, water, and roots protected for all.

Established in 1988, Lancaster Farmland Trust has developed into a robust and dynamic organization with more than 573 easements under our belt consisting of more than 35,000 acres that serve to protect farmland from development, particularly within the Plain Sect. In the years after our founding, national recognition surrounded Lancaster Farmland Trust for the success of our efforts. Lancaster Farmland Trust is a leader in private farmland preservation. We are a private, nonprofit organization with the mission of preserving agriculture and stewarding the land. Our volunteer Board of Trustees understands the cultural and economic importance of protecting working lands. Our funding comes through donations from private individuals and businesses, and grants from various private and public organizations and foundations.
