Connecticut Farmland Trust was founded in 2002 with a very simple mission: protect as much of Connecticut’s vanishing farmland as possible, before it’s all gone.  Now Accredited with a full-time staff of four, CFT has saved 41 family farms and over 3,000 acres of farmland.

Working with a variety of public and private partners, we work to raise funds and purchase development rights on farms. Most of these are the small, family farms that form the backbone of Connecticut’s agricultural future.

When CFT protects a farm, that land becomes a “forever farm.”  The land will only be able to be used for agriculture, forever.  It is a promise of permanence, or, as conservationists say, of perpetuity.  We don’t dictate how a farmer can farm, nor whether they can sell the land, or who to.  What we promise, however, is that those important soils — that land — will always be available for growing food.
