  • Partnership and commitment focused on building long-term relationships with farmers, ranchers, landowners, and other partners.
  • Environmental stewardship and resilient working landscapes that provide the basis for sustainable and organic agriculture.
  • Fairness, accountability, and transparency when connecting people with land and financing.
  • Learning from diverse communities of farmers and ranchers who inform, teach, and inspire us to improve our work.
