Our farmland is vulnerable

Washington farmland is among the most expensive in the country.1

Over the next decade, 70% of farmers will retire without a successor.2

More people are moving to Pierce and Snohomish counties than anywhere else in the nation.3

Our focus: near-urban farmland in the
Puget Sound region

Our conservation approach leverages every dollar donated

Buy

Valuable farmland is secured and no longer on the market. Private donations allow us to quickly purchase farmland when farmers can’t.

Protect

Development potential is removed, and the farm stays a farm, forever. Conservation makes land more affordable in the long run.

Sell

Farmland is placed in the hands of sustainable and organic growers – where it belongs. Selling land allows us to recycle dollars and fund future projects.

Shape Washington's future. Protect our farmland forever.

PCC Farmland Trust protects and stewards threatened farmland in Washington, working to keep land in production by making it accessible to future generations of farmers. We were founded in 1999 by PCC Community Markets, and are an independent nonprofit.
