We provide various tiers of direct services to individuals and organizations who need help with farmland access, tenure and transfer situations or issues. Most of this help is provided at no-cost thanks to the support of individual, foundation and corporate donors. Read some specific examples of how we’ve helped farmers, farm families and landowners .
Information and referrals
Our staff regularly responds to questions and requests for information about farmland access, especially in New England. If you’re unable to find answers on our website, contact us with your question. We’ll do our best to respond within 48 hours.
If you contact us and we determine that your inquiry can’t be addressed with a simple referral, our New England field agents will provide you with advising services at no cost. We do our best to meet the needs of you or your organization – and to make the best use of our time together. Typically, we will request background information, set a time to talk or meet, and may ask you to prepare in advance (read, complete a worksheet, assemble documents). We may identify other advisors and resources for you to pursue.
This service is provided at no-cost to individual advisees. We are committed to ensuring that our services benefit as many people as possible. We cap our consultation at two hours per individual, which may be spread out over time. We hope that anyone who values our services will do their part to “pay forward” the benefits they received by showing their financial and community support for our work.
For over a decade, we have specialized in providing in-depth and sustained services to farm seekers, farm families and landowners who may want more assistance and on-going support. Examples of these client services include:

We charge a fee for these ongoing consulting services. Through our cost-share and sliding scale plans we will find a way to work with anyone who needs our services. Contact us to find out more.
