New York is a farm state. It is also home to a population of nearly 19 million people who rely on its bounty for food. But New York State has been rapidly losing its farms to development. Almost 450,000 acres of farmland have been developed in New York since the 1980s – an area equal to approximately 4,500 farms in New York.
Together, we can ensure a future with a strong farm and food economy, productive farmland, and abundant local food. Please join American Farmland Trust for the fourth annual No Farms No Food® Rally at the State Capitol in Albany on March 13. At the No Farms No Food® Rally, farmers, local foods advocates, land trust staff, community leaders and others who care about local farms and food come together from across New York to meet with State Legislators and urge them to support funding and legislation that strengthens farm and food economies, protects farmland and the environment, and increases access to locally grown food for all New Yorkers.
