Connecticut Farmland Trust is a statewide nonprofit organization working to protect farmland from the constant threat of development. Keeping land in farms helps to establish a local, sustainable food system, supports our economy, and contributes to improving the quality of land, air and water. Our goal is to make working lands available to Connecticut farmers for the indefinite future.
Since 2002, Connecticut Farmland Trust has partnered with organizations throughout the state to procure agricultural easements on 41 farms. So far, we’ve ensured that over 3,000 acres of farmland will remain farmland forever, and we’re constantly working to save more. Click here to see a list of the farms we’ve helped conserve.
