PCC Farmland Trust was founded in 1999 by PCC Natural Markets as a separate, nonprofit organization. The Farmland Trust uniquely focuses on conserving sustainable and organic working farms.

To date, the Trust has preserved 1,306 acres of organic farmland. The majority of our funds come from individuals—like you.

PCC Natural Markets is a strong advocate of PCC Farmland Trust, providing support through a variety of in-store promotions, vendor contributions, and cash donations. While some products from Trust-protected farms are sold at PCC stores, each farm’s relationship with PCC is an independent business decision made between PCC and growers.

How you can help

PCC Farmland Trust is a nonprofit, 501 (c)(3) land trust whose mission is to secure, preserve and steward threatened farmland in the Northwest, ensuring that generations of local farmers productively farm using sustainable, organic growing methods. The Farmland Trust takes its mission one step further by working to place farmers on rescued property, actively producing food for the local community.

Working to keep farms in the hands of farmers

In Washington state, we lose farmland at a rate of 45,000 acres each year—twice the size of Lake Washington. PCC Farmland Trust is leading a call to action and increasing awareness about why it’s so urgent that we save what’s left of one of our most valuable natural resources: farmland.

To learn more about all of the farms that we’ve helped to preserve, please visit our farms page.
