Mission Statement

The Connecticut Farmland Trust (CFT) is the only private statewide conservation organization dedicated solely to permanently protecting Connecticut's farmland. We are governed by a Board of Directors made up of people of various backgrounds including farmers and agricultural professionals.

Our mission is to permanently protect Connecticut's working farmland. To accomplish this, we:

  • Work with Connecticut farmers to protect their land for agricultural use by acquiring agricultural conservation easements and farmland;
  • Share our expertise and technical knowledge to assist landowners, land trusts, town officials, and state agencies in protecting agricultural land; and
  • Promote farmland preservation education through presentations and outreach.

Description

Since 2002, CFT has grown to hold agricultural conservation easements that protect nearly 3,000 acres of farmland on 26 farms around the state and has assisted partners in the preservation of 789 additional acres. We also serve as a leading resource on conserving Connecticut’s working farmland.
