  • Mission:
  • The mission of the Central Valley Farmland Trust is to work with landowners and conservation partners to preserve agricultural lands in the Central Valley for future generations.

  • History:
  • In 2002 representatives from Sacramento, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Merced Counties began meeting to begin the process of creating a regional land trust. These early meetings included individuals from the Sacramento Valley Ag Land Conservancy, the Stanislaus Farmland Trust, the Merced County Farmland and Open Space Trust and farmers from San Joaquin County. They created the Central Valley Farmland Trust (CVFT) in May 2004 and began the work of officially merging the three organizations into one. This merger was completed in September 2006. The Central Valley Farmland Trust was awarded accredited status by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission in September 2008. This recognition indicates that CVFT is operating at the highest professional standards within the industry, and it is currently the only accredited land trust in California‚Äôs Central Valley.
