Farmland for a New Generation New York
Farmland for a New Generation New York is a program coordinated by American Farmland Trust, in partnership with the state of New York, agricultural organizations, land trusts, and others, that helps farmers seeking land and landowners wanting to keep their land in farming.
the program offers a statewide Resource Center and is supported by a network of Regional Navigators, partner organizations with dedicated staff who can provide information and personal assistance to farmers and landowners across New York.
The Resource Center provides listings of farmland and farmers, training materials and events, and personal assistance.
