Farmland for the Next Generation: Land Access Training

This project was led by AFT's Farms for a New Generation with support from our funders.

Transitioning Land to a New Generation was funded by a Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (BFRDP) grant (Award # 2020-49400-33257) from the United States Department of Agriculture/National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA NIFA) with support from Farm Credit. Our 3-year project proposal worked to foster healthy communication skills between landowners and land seekers and continue to build a support network of ag service providers trained in land transfer skills.
