On March 19, 2024, American Farmland Trust (AFT), a national nonprofit organization that focuses on protecting farmers and farm land in the U.S., launched a new U.S. Farmed certification and packaging seal for products that derive at least 95 percent of their agricultural ingredients from farms in the United States.  This week’s featured video was published by Anheuser-Busch to announce that they are the first company to utilize the U.S. Farmed Seal on their beer products. Watch the video to hear Luke Adams, 3rd generation barley farmer, talk about this exciting announcement from Anheuser-Busch.

With its U.S. Farmed certification, AFT aims to tackle the combined challenge of demographic change and farmland loss presenting a massive threat to our nation’s food systems. This U.S. Farmed certification will open opportunities for farmers to receive support for exploring succession planning, farmland protection tools for their operations, among other useful tactics to safeguard our nation’s food systems. AFT invites you, both farmers and producers of value-added products, to become certified as “US Farmed” and help to contribute to growth and continuity of regional and national agricultural networks. Each certification has the potential to affect the future of American agriculture, and AFT is committed to supporting your needs.  American Farmland Trust
