Adopt An Acre Inc. is a non-profit organization that has been created to support and supplement the existing efforts of a multitude of agencies that are protecting land from development pressures. Conservation easements is the tool through which the government, conservancies, and land trusts preserve these vital acres from being converted into the final cash crop of houses or industrial sites.
Saving farmland is a priority issue for all citizens who value the availability of locally grown food and the benefits of a strong agricultural industry. Pennsylvania farmers generate nearly $5 billion in cash receipts and $45 billion in total economic impact, according to state Department of Agriculture statistics. Each farmer produces food and fiber for 165 people on more than 58,000 farms across the
Commonwealth, comprising 7.7 million acres of crop-land, woodland, and pastures.
Pennsylvania leads the nation in saving farmland. But, to remain number one in this effort, more people are needed to stay ahead of the bulldozers that threaten to convert fertile fields into the final cash crop of houses or industrial buildings. Together we can protect more farms.
