Partnering with NYALT to Conserve Farmlands

Our mission is to conserve working farmland and promote a greater appreciation for the agricultural and forested lands and their associated natural resources that enrich our communities and connect future generations to the land, locally and statewide.

Since 2006, NYALT has partnered with landowners to protect over 5500 acres of valuable farmland in Central New York. See a map of the farms we have protected with conservation easements here.
