Farmland Protection Web
FIC maintains an ever-growing collection of state laws, reports and other literature relating to farm and ranch land protection. It also offers an "answer service" to provide direct technical assistance by phone, e-mail and fax. In addition, the FIC staff monitor and report on farmland protection activities around the country, and identify, acquire and develop new materials.
According to Jennifer
Dempsey, assistant director of American Farmland Trust's Technical Assistance
Services, the new format makes it easier to find the materials people typically
request about the loss of farmland and its consequences. These include sample
ordinances and documents from successful initiatives around the country, and
fact sheets and articles that convey basic information about farmland protection
approaches and the consequences of the loss of farmland. The FIC also is
available by calling (800) 370-4879.
