What are the challenges of farmland access?

The current challenge facing today’s farmers is accessing farmland that has all of the following characteristics:

  1. Available: There must be enough land for everyone who wants to farm.
  2. Appropriate: Land must be suitable for a successful farm operation.
  3. Affordable:  The farmer must be able to purchase or rent the property.
  4. Accessible:  The farmer must have physical and legal access to the land
  5. Secure:  The farmer must have adequate security of use of the land to make investments in the business and the land.
  6. Equitable:  There must be an equitable assignment of land rights and obligations. Farmers’ opportunity to build equity must also be considered.
