Founded in 1980 by a group of farmers and conservationists concerned about the rapid loss of the nation's farmland to development, American Farmland Trust (AFT) is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to protecting our nation's strategic agricultural resources.

Working with farmers and ranchers, political leaders and community activists, AFT has helped to permanently protect more than a million acres of America's best farm and ranch land.

American Farmland Trust has initiated several critical projects that serve Oregon’s farmers and affect its farmland, including an “Agriculture Infrastructure” project examining the state’s critical agricultural resources.
