What is the Real Threat to US Farmers Owning Farmland?

NFFCNFFC In the News

Based on research by NFFC and Vermont Law School’s Center for Agriculture and Food Systems (CAFS), “the real threat to our food security…. is broader corporate ownership and consolidation of American farmland — including by domestic investors”. NFFC appreciates Lela Nargi’s dive into this question for Ambrook Research which highlights our four reports on land grabs. These grabs have been led by Wall Street investors, pension funds, and other financiers “looking for a place to park their money” – not by corporations based in China (which owns 1 percent of foreign-owned farmland) or Canada (which owns 31 percent of foreign-owned farmland) per the Congressional Research Service.
