Farmland is an essential resource, meeting one of the most basic of human needs: food. As land is lost to urban sprawl and other non-farm activity, our ability to produce food is diminished and options for future food production are limited. The fourteen essays in the second edition of Farmland Preservation provide a diversity of views and case studies and speak to the need to preserve the agricultural land base.
