Agricultural Stewardship Association

A. S. A.

The Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA) is a community-supported land trust dedicated to protecting local farmland from encroaching development. Working together with interested landowners and active supporters, their goal is to protect 20,000 acres by the end of 2015 and to ensure a future for agriculture in Washington and Rensselaer counties.

What role can non-farmers play in farmland protection? We talk with experts in the field of farmland protection and identify real roles for all of us who depend upon farmland for our food.
