The mission of the Connecticut Farmland Trust is to permanently protect Connecticut’s working farmland.
To further this mission, the Connecticut Farmland Trust:
- accepts donations of agricultural conservation easements and farmland,
- purchases agricultural conservation easements and farmland,
- partners with towns and land trusts to identify threatened farms and opportunities for land protection and to help address farmland stewardship and management concerns, and
- partners with communities throughout the state to encourage local farmland preservation efforts through outreach and support to farmers, local land trusts, local officials, town planners, conservation commissions, and community organizations.
