We are PCC Farmland Trust, a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) land trust whose mission is to secure, preserve and steward threatened farmland in the Northwest, ensuring that generations of local farmers productively farm using sustainable, organic growing methods. The Farmland Trust takes its mission one step further by working to place farmers on rescued property, actively producing food for the local community.
To date, PCC Farmland Trust has saved ten farm properties, totaling 1306 acres, that support 15 organic farms. Our preservation work spans the state of Washington. Visit our Farms page to explore regions where we’re active, and to learn more about the individual farms we’ve preserved since 1999.
Local Chefs for Local Farms: January 26 at Joule
Join PCC Farmland Trust for a seasonal 4-course dinner with wine pairings at Joule, where we’ll enjoy a locally-inspired, modern-Korean feast. Farmers Mark and Katie Green will be speaking alongside Chef Rachel Yang about the benefits and challenges–social, economic and physical–of eating and growing local, sustainably produced food.
As we turn our attention toward preserving more farmland in the Puyallup Valley, we take a brief look back at the agricultural history of the area. Did you know that this area was once the hops-growing center of the world? Or that 70% of Pierce County’s farmland has been lost since 1950?
