Are you a Berkshire County farmer operating some or all of your business on leased land? Looking to finally get a handshake lease in writing? Are you a landowner (individual, non-profit, or public entity) who leases or hopes to lease your land to a farmer? Want to understand the different types of lease arrangements, what makes a strong lease, and who should be reviewing your lease?
Organized by American Farmland Trust and Land For Good, this in-person workshop will be a deep dive into everything you need to know about leasing farmland in Berkshire County. The workshop will feature speakers from Land For Good, Three Maples Market Garden, Berkshire Natural Resources Council, Conservation Works, and The Legal Food Hub.
There will be time for Q&A followed by a mix/mingle—an opportunity for farmers and resource folks to connect and peruse the resource materials table.
This event and dinner are FREE. Advance registration is required. The event is limited to 40 farmers, so reserve your spot now by registering below! Reach out to Jamie Pottern, email@example.com, 413-240-4621 with any questions.
