Protecting our community's working landscape of farms and forests, connecting people to the land, and promoting a vibrant future for agriculture in the region.
The Agricultural Stewardship Association is a private, community supported non-profit land trust protecting valuable farmland in Washington and Rensselaer counties for future generations. We help landowners who want to protect their productive land with conservation easements. ASA also accepts responsibility for the ongoing stewardship of each conserved property, ensuring that the land is used in a way that is consistent with the terms of the agreement. ASA actively promotes public awareness of farmland conservation and encourages policies which support and enhance agriculture.
