This essay was prepared for the Northern Illinois University College of Law's eighth annual symposium on land use entitled Building Cooperation Across Communities. The essay initially identifies three premises, specifically, farmland preservation, the structural changes in farm organization, and the changes in society's relation to food and agriculture. The essay then goes on to consider how the goals and values involved in each of these three areas overlap, and the resulting policy issues and questions that arise from the interplay of these issues.
