Review for American Farmland Trust, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a past board member of AFT and want to echo the comments of Miranda. AFT is unique in its leadership on both agricultural and environmental issues. From humble beginnings over thirty years ago, AFT has led the fight for farmland protection, convening farmers, ranchers, legislators and businesspeople who share a concern for agriculture and the environment. Farmland protection has always been a core value for AFT. It is inspiring to see the board and staff take on new challenges in promoting farm bill reform and the development of new markets for farmers and ranchers. AFT's staff is passionate and highly capable. They are supported by a terrific board with leaders from diverse backgrounds. I wish I were there to engage in the farm bill debates ahead!
