No Farms No Food® Rally

No Farms No Food Rally enews sizeNew York’s farmland forms the backbone of its growing farm and food economy, yet the state has lost a significant amount of farmland to real estate development. According to data from the United States Department of Agriculture, between 1982 and 2007, nearly half a million acres of New York farmland, or roughly 4,500 median-sized farms, were paved over.

Each year, American Farmland Trust leads a group of farmers, local food advocates, community leaders and others who care about local farms and food to the State Capitol in Albany for a No Farms No Food® Rally. Participants meet with state legislators and urge them to support funding and legislation that benefit New York farms, food and farmland.

The No Farms No Food® Rally is typically held during the New York state legislative session in the spring.
