Alaska Farmland Trust (AFTC) is a private, non-profit land trust dedicated to assisting landowners in preserving their working agricultural lands.  Preserving farmland in production is essential as Alaska faces increasing food security issues.  AFTC’s goals are to secure Alaska’s farmland for future generations and to promote agricultural infrastructure through enhanced marketing, statewide policy, and provide education to the public about agricultural issues.
