Kentucky has lost 61% of its farmland

The Rural Blog reports that the American Farmland Trust will issue a report that shows Kentucky having lost 791,000 acres of farmland from 1992 to 2012 and 499,000 acres of that, or 61 percent, was from building of single-family homes on lots of two to 10 acres. The national figure was 41 percent, so Kentucky stands out.
