Imagine a world without agriculture. Farmers supply the food we eat and contribute to many products we use daily. The land farmers use to grow these products is under constant pressure to be converted to residential or commercial uses. Once this land is converted to a non-farm use, it will likely never return to farm production again. The loss of farmland is an extremely important issue globally, but at the local level as well; one the District feels strongly about.
