LFG’s Land Access Project (LAP) is based on broad collaborations across the six New England states to improve land access and transition for our region’s beginning and established farmers.
Implemented in Phases – One (2010-2013), Two (2015-2018) and Three (2018-21) – LAP provides direct support and education to farm seekers, and improves the conditions for accessing land. Project collaborators also work with landowners, transitioning farm families, communities, policymakers and a wide range of service providers.

Core financial support for the Land Access Project comes from grants from the USDA/NIFA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program.
Matching funds have also been provided by several private foundations, along with thousands of hours of in-kind matching support from cooperating organizations and professionals.
