American Farmland Trust

I was in the office of one of my partners at the law firm and he had these awesome stickers.

No Farms No Food

American Farmland Trust is committed to protecting the nation’s farm and ranch land, keeping it healthy and improving the economic viability of agriculture.Their staff of farmers, policy experts, researchers and scientists know the issues from the ground up — how communities can be strengthened by protecting farmland and supporting local farmers, and how farmers and ranchers can best be engaged to conserve the land and protect natural resources.

They work with federal, state and local leaders and communities to develop legislation, implement policies and execute programs that keep farmers on their land and protect our environment.

Their web site has lots of information and is a great way to spend a lot of time learning about ways to support your local farmers.  Please check it out.

  1. I recognize that logo! Our old CSA in VA had that on a bumper sticker on the van that brought the boxes to the pick up site!
    Thanks for the memory and the link!

      When my 15 year old son saw it, he pointed out that at his grandmother’s family farm in Oak Harbor, everyone has them, even on the tractor. He thought the tractor might have been a waste of a good sticker because it doesn’t drive on the roads and no one would see it.
