Our mission is to protect and preserve Ontario farmlands

Every day in Ontario, we lose 319 acres of farmland to non-agricultural land uses like urban development and aggregate extraction. This rate of farmland loss is unsustainable and cannot be allowed to continue. Everyone in Ontario relies on agriculture, from the food we eat, to the jobs in our communities. Without strong protections in place for our farmland, we may not be able to provide enough food to feed our growing population.

Your support helps save farmland in Ontario today, so that future generations can rely on it tomorrow.

Our Vision is a future where Ontario’s farmland is highly valued, where diverse farming communities prosper, and where the permanent protection of farmland supports a strong and sustainable food production system that is recognized as an integral part of a thriving economy.

Farmland Loss

In the past 35 years, Ontario has lost 2.8 million acres (18%) of its farmland to non-agricultural land uses like urbanization and aggregate mining. 

Farmland Protection

We work to protect and preserve farmland, ensuring these precious lands remain productive for future generations.

Protected Farms

Farmers are stewards of the land. We have worked with many farmland owners across Ontario to protect their farms for the future.
