Conserving Local Farms in New York

The Columbia Land Conservancy (CLC) is protecting agricultural land in New York’s Columbia County. The Conserve a Local Farm (CALF) program protects farmland by establishing conservation agreements, or easements, on property that limits non-agricultural use. The organization identifies at-risk land, then partners with conservation-minded buyers. They also promote relationships between farmers and investors through their Farmer Landowner Match program.
