Frequently Asked Questions:

What if I can’t afford to buy land yet?

It is common that a new farm business will not generate enough revenue in the first few years to enable a farmer to immediately purchase a farm relying solely on farm income. Therefore, for many farmers, leasing the farm (or at least parts of it) may be in the best medium- to long-term financial interest of the farm. Most farms in New England, including long-established operations, rent a portion of the land they need for their business.
