See what some of our veteran subscribers say about FPR:

“Farmland Preservation Report is an extremely valuable source of current news and tips containing state of the art happenings in farmland preservation…it’s a must-read especially in this challenging fiscal climate.” — Ray Pickering, Fauquier County (Va.) Farmland Preservation Program

“There’s a human side to farmland preservation, as well as a technical and operations side. Farmland Preservation Report is the only publication that covers both sides in depth. For those of us working every day to protect America’s working lands it is the one, indispensable publication. The Report informs me about all the latest developments in the field from around the country. But, perhaps more importantly, it reminds me why I do what I do. It is the one subscription that I will keep – when all the others have fallen to the budget axe! Highly recommended!” — Michael McGrath, AICP, Delaware Agricultural Lands Preservation Foundation

“FPR is instrumental in providing government and non-profit organizations with up to date information. Like agriculture itself, farmland preservation is a diverse and dynamic field that evolves with each passing year. FPR enables readers to keep pace with the most recent happenings from across the country.” — Doug Wolfgang, Executive Director, Pennsylvania Bureau of Farmland Preservation

“I rely on the Farmland Preservation Report to keep our office up to date on news related to agricultural retention and development programs at the national / regional level. Reading the FPR helps staff avoid tunnel vision and more importantly, helps us target potential partners and avoid missteps, and stimulates bigger thinking.” — Daniel M. Kennedy, Farmland Program Director, Burlington County, NJ
