Missouri Farmland Preservation Trust

The Missouri Farmland Preservation Trust is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 1995. Our goal is to promote the conservation and preservation of farm lands and open spaces around the fringe of Missouri’s urban areas. We believe that the farms and woodlands surrounding our Missouri cities are a gift of Creation that provide us with clean air, fresh food and a quiet peace of mind for Missourians-present and future.



“The measure of the depth of a nation’s topsoil is a measure of that nation’s wealth”
Thomas Jefferson 1819

“ …unless we preserve open spaces while they are still available, we will have none left to preserve”
Richard Nixon 1970
