Want Local Food? Got to have Local Farmland!
Our food comes from farmland—and we are losing farmland fast. New York State has lost half a million acres of farmland to suburban sprawl since the 1980s. That’s the equivalent of 4,500 farms. We have to stop losing farmland now. Don’t let concrete be the last crop. #nofarmsnofood
