Lancaster Farmland Trust — Working with Amish Farmers



Working with the Amish community has proven to be a great success for the Lancaster Farmland Trust.  I had a chance to meet with Karen Martynick, Executive Director, and Jeff Swinehart, Deputy Director, to learn about how the land trust was founded and what they have done to ensure a successful relationship with the Amish community.

You will hear that they had an ambitious startegic plan to double the acreage they protect.  They were able to meet that goal, all while going through accreditation.

Listen in and then check out their website for more information.

You can also learn more about accreditation and the Land Trust Accreditation Commission.
