Peconic Land Trust is continuously working to protect our beautiful Long Island and to connect people to the land.

Founded in 1983, Peconic Land Trust conserves Long Island’s working farms, natural lands, and heritage. Since the beginning, we have worked conscientiously with landowners, communities, municipalities, partner organizations, and donors, to conserve over 12,000 acres of land on Long Island.

The Peconic Land Trust does not collect or distribute Community Preservation Funds from the 2% real estate transfer tax. We depend on private contributions to do our conservation work.

Long Island's Working Farms

Long Island’s agricultural heritage dates back thousands of years when Native Americans began growing the Three Sisters (corn, beans, and squash) in rich, productive soils. Today, farms produce hundreds of products, employ thousands of workers, and feed millions of people. Peconic Land Trust works to ensure that our family farms remain productive and that our local communities have access to healthy food now and in the future.
