Success for a new generation of farmers and ranchers hinges on whether they can secure suitable land to start and expand their operations. Yet this can be a major challenge. American Farmland Trust is here to help.
Partnering with the nation’s leading experts in land access, we developed “Farmland for the Next Generation,” a comprehensive 8-part land access trainer curriculum. Our skills based approach focuses on what people need to be able to do, not just on what they need to know. It addresses three paths to land access: leasing, purchasing, and receiving land through inheritance or gift.
