Finding Farmland Course
A series of lessons that will prepare you to confidently approach the financial decisions related to acquiring your first farm.
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. This free course includes articles, videos, podcasts, activities, and resources, and was created in partnership with a nationwide network of farmland access organizations.
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.
Navigate through the lessons using the menu below. Take the course at your own pace, and send us your questions about the financial concepts discussed or your personal land financing via the comments section in each lesson or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take this short pre-course survey before you begin to help set a benchmark for your knowledge about the process of accessing land and to help us improve our work.
