Acre Policy is a new way to advance good policy, at state and local levels, in support of farmers and ranchers.
U.S. agriculture is troubled.
Prime farmland is disappearing, greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture are increasing, and farmers' share of the food dollar just hit a 15-year low. Farming is the whitest profession in America, and an overwhelming majority of farmers are over
65 years old.
We lack a supportive policy infrastructure for regional, responsible agriculture to address these issues.
Acre Policy is a new way to share, develop, and implement good policy at state and local levels, in support of equity and stewardship, in support of farmers and ranchers.
We work for a future where farmers reflect the diversity of America, where farmers can make a viable livelihood producing food for their communities, and where our working lands grow more resilient each year.
