50% of the proceeds benefit farmland conservation in Rensselaer and Washington counties
The Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA) is a community-supported land trust dedicated to protecting our local farmland from encroaching development. Working together with interested landowners and active supporters, our goal is to protect 23,000 acres by the end of 2019 and to ensure a future for agriculture in our counties.
If you live in or have visited Washington and Rensselaer counties in upstate New York, you know that generations of talented and hard working farmers have shaped our beautiful landscapes and provided the foundation upon which our economy and culture are built. If you feel passionately about the farms in our region–the beauty, fresh foods, recreation, clean air and water, and many other benefits they provide–please join us. The future of farming is in the hands of those who care. Check out our maps of conserved lands in Washington and Rensselaer counties.
