Our Farm and Ranch Land Urgently Needs our Committed Stewardship

California Lettuce Farmers

According to the 2007 National Resources Inventory, over
four million acres of active agricultural land were developed between 2002 and 2007. This represents an area roughly the size of Massachusetts.

Together we can save millions of acres of the land that sustains us. We can work with farmers and ranchers to address major environmental challenges like climate change and water quality. And we can help the nation's farmers meet the growing demand for local food.

Our plan for the next five years carves a clear path to a sustainable future for agriculture and our communities: a future in which all Americans can enjoy farm-fresh food on our tables, the pleasure of an open country road, the security of clean water, and farms contributing to local economies.

We hope you will join us as we continue our work to shape a bright and sustainable future for America’s farms and ranches.
