Farms, Fields, and Forests

Franklin Land Trust is a non-profit in western Massachusetts that assists farmers and other landowners who want to protect their land from unwanted development. FLT has helped hundreds of families in the region to address their financial goals, family needs, and conservation vision.

Local Farms, Local Food

This fall, we invite you to explore the connection between the local food you love and the conserved land where it is grown using our new local farm guide.

We are surrounded by forests, family farms, open spaces, and wetlands that provide clean air and water, fresh local food, places for recreation, and important habitat for our wild neighbors. These exist because folks like you choose conservation.
