Sponsor is the Agricultural Stewardship Association, dedicated to protecting our farmland for the future.
The Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA) is a community-supported land trust dedicated to protecting our local farmland from encroaching development. Working together with interested landowners and active supporters, the group’s goal is to protect 24,000 acres by the end of 2020 and to ensure a future for agriculture in our counties.
Generations of talented and hard working farmers have shaped our beautiful landscapes and provided the foundation upon which our economy and culture are built. Persons who feel passionately about the farms in our region–the beauty, fresh foods, recreation, clean air and water, and many other benefits they provide–are invited to join. The future of farming is in the hands of those who care.
