FINDING FARMLAND Tools & Strategies for Affordable Land Access


Accessing land is one of the most complex financial decisions that you will make as a farmer. Join NYFC, MOFGA, Land for Good, and Maine Farmland Trust in a workshop designed to prepare early career farmers to approach land access with confidence.

You will learn about:

  • Programs for farmers seeking land in Maine

  • Creative methods to secure land tenure

  • Working with a land trust to find and acquire farmland

  • Financing and affordability tools

  • Using NYFC’s Finding Farmland Calculator

The training is free to all participants, and refreshments will be served.

Please register so we can distribute materials before and after the training. We also ask all participants to complete our pre- and post-surveys to help us improve our work.

This project is supported by a grant from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture through its Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program, #2016-70017-25499.
