Conserving Montana’s working farm and ranchlands through local

voices, local government, and local community planning.

What is the Ag Land Network of Montana?

The Ag Land Network serves as a state-wide collaborative of Montanans who care about their community's legacy of working farms and ranches. Last year, through discussions and webinars, network participants had the opportunity to learn from one another about the effective strategies they have used to engage their local governments in land use planning that conserves agricultural heritage. This year we will continue to share our experiences with one another and work together to stay informed and engaged with policies that impact agriculture across the state.

Ag Land Network Goals for 2013:

  • Streamline communication between participants with the Ag Land Network e-mail listserv

  • Keep network members connected through e-newsletters documenting current happenings

  • Visit with elected officials and directly communicate the importance of agriculture

  • Raise awareness of legislation impacting agriculture with action alerts, updates and website

  • Collaborate with other efforts to conserve working landscapes across Montana
