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 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.
Susan and Greg are super supporters. They are volunteers, donors, and site stewards, ensuring that restoration projects and native plantings stay healthy in between work parties.
