Welcome to the National Young Farmers Coalition’s Finding Farmland Course, a one-stop shop to guide you through the financial decisions related to accessing farmland.
We expect every participant to arrive at this course with their own unique collection of knowledge and skills, so please feel encouraged to jump around between lessons to find the content that’s most useful to you. Accessing farmland is not a linear process, and neither is this course–treat it like a reference book.
The Finding Farmland Calculator, another Young Farmers project, serves as a companion tool throughout the course. Watch the walkthrough video below for an introduction to the Calculator, or try it out yourself at findingfarmland.org.
Before you get started, please complete the pre-course survey in the Get Started section below, and answer the brief survey questions in future lessons. It will really help us improve our work.
Any questions? Share them in the comments section within each lesson to start a conversation with others taking the course, or email our team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
