Find Land You Can Afford: Partnering with a Land Trust to Secure Farmland

This session will provide farmers with tools to partner with land trusts and other land-holding organizations in order to gain access to land. We will discuss the steps of working with a land trust, showcasing examples of innovative land deals. Farm-focused land trusts are providing secure farmland leases, selling protected land to farmers at reduced cost, and keeping land affordable through innovative conservation easements. The goal of this workshop is to empower farmers to seek out and develop partnerships that lead to secure land access. The National Young Farmers Coalition will be releasing a guide soon on working with land trusts to find affordable farmland. The PCC Farmland Trust places organic farmers on land they conserve and has protected 10 farm properties that support 14 organic farms.
