Mission
The mission of the Ontario Farmland Trust is to protect and preserve farmland and the associated agricultural, natural and cultural features in the countryside and to research and educate to further the preservation of these lands for the benefit of current and future generations. Our vision is for an Ontario that includes a healthy and vibrant agricultural landscape that provides a safe and local supply of food for all Ontarians now and in the future.

  • To protect and preserve farmlands and associated agricultural, natural and cultural features in the countryside for the benefit of current and future generations.

  • To acquire, secure, manage and otherwise deal with farmlands, interests in lands, and associated agricultural, natural and cultural features.

  • To research and educate about the value, management, use and protection of farmlands and associated agricultural, natural and cultural features.

  • To receive, manage and disburse funds, donations and bequests.
