POST started FFI with a campaign goal of raising $25M to fund farmland protection ($24M) and infrastructure improvements ($1M). To date, POST has raised $10.53M, 42% of our fundraising goal. We are incredibly grateful to the supporters who have helped to launch this campaign.
POST uses a time-tested methodology for evaluating working lands for acquisition and protection. For FFI, we have adapted our traditional project evaluation criteria to prioritize agricultural values. Once we’ve done our analysis, we work with willing landowners to purchase the land or to preserve it with legal protections called “conservation easements.” Easements allow the land to stay in agricultural production while removing the threat of development and protect the natural resources.
On the lands we own, we offer farmers long-term leases and invest in land improvement projects that are crucial to viable farming operations. The combination of land preservation, a reliable lease and infrastructure that works well ensures that we achieve the conservation outcomes that we all want to see.
