ASA saves farmland for the future

2175579_16x20_05ASA is a nonprofit land trust helping landowners conserve farmland in Washington and Rensselaer counties in the upper Hudson River Valley. Our goal is to ensure that future generations can continue to enjoy our local agricultural traditions, landscapes, and products. Each family that has protected their land has a unique story, and every conserved farm contributes in its own way to our vision for the continued vitality of agriculture in our region.

There are several options available to landowners who are interested in permanently protecting their land from development. The particular method used for conservation depends on the goals of the landowner, the attributes of the land, the availability of funding and other details.

Once land is protected by a conservation easement, ASA takes on a permanent responsibility for stewardship, including annual visits and meetings with landowners to ensure that conservation goals are met.

ASA involves the community

It takes a community…to make farmland conservation happen.

The work of ASA is actively supported by many dedicated individuals through donations, gifts, and volunteer efforts. We are so fortunate to live in a community that shares a love for the land and takes an active role in protecting it.

ASA offers a variety of events and programs throughout the year, including workshops, farm visits, hikes, bike tours, and a very successful landscape art show. All our endeavors are tied to the land and focus on community involvement in farmland conservation.
