Farmers and food advocates who wish to voice their support of New York farmland may attend the No Farms, No Food Rally from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 13 at the state Capitol in Albany.

Hosted by the American Farmland Trust, participants in the rally may meet with state legislators to urge them to support funding that strengthens communities that rely on agriculture, protects farmland and the environment, and increases access to locally grown food. The state gradually has lost valuable farmland over the past three decades, according to the nonprofit advocacy group. Nearly 450,000 acres of farmland have been developed in the state since the 1980s, an area equal to about 4,500 farms.
