Make Your Land Available for Farming, free webinar & resources for landowners

Land is an essential element of farming, but most farmland in New England isn’t being farmed. As a landowner, when you make land available for farming you help secure a future for farming in your community. From a small vegetable plot to acreage for livestock, partnering with farmers to create productive and sustainable uses for all or parts of your property can bring many rewards! An upcoming webinar series and the resources shared below will help you feel empowered and prepared to see your land used as an important piece of the crucial farmland base in New England.
