  • FREE! Make valuable connections and learn from other farmers, landowners and agricultural service providers that can help you connect with land, capital and training resources – while enjoying food and drinks. When you make land available for farming you help secure a future for farming in your region. Farmers are looking for land to rent – from a small vegetable plot to livestock or crops. Productive, sustainable uses for all or parts of your property can bring many rewards! Event is sponsored by New Entry Sustainable Farming Project and Land For Good.

More info

  • Young Farmer Network of Southeastern New England will visit farms demonstrating all different types of land situations (intergenerational, leasing from a land trust, private landowner lease, cooperative land use, private purchase, etc) as part of a Young Farmer Nights series. Land access is consistently cited by farmers as their biggest hurdle, and we are all finding our own way to make it work one way or another, so we are eager to highlight the many different and convoluted paths to land security. This night we’ll be discussing lease vs. purchase. Please join us! Farm Tour starts at 6pm followed by a potluck dinner. In partnership with Land For Good.
