Farms for a New Generation is a national initiative that supports new, beginning, and next generation farmers and ranchers to gain access to land, steward it well, and succeed in agriculture. Through research, trainings, and partnerships we engage farmers, ranchers, agricultural landowners, and the educators and policy makers that support them. Check out our resources below to learn more.
We recognize that access to land is a complex issue. We acknowledge the systemic theft and barriers to land that historically excluded communities, including Indigenous people, African Americans, and People of Color. We acknowledge that inequitable wealth distribution has placed agricultural land and resources out of reach for many aspiring farmers and ranchers. We envision a transformation towards more health and prosperity for all people and land.
