LFG’s Land Access Project (LAP) was based on broad collaborations across the six New England states to improve land access and transition for our region’s beginning and established farmers.
|“The many options for finding and securing land are intimidating—and every agreement is different, just as every piece of land is different,” shared BrennaMae at Patch Farm. “Navigating through the options—and all of the individuals one works with—can be daunting. We consider ourselves fortunate to have had the support from Land For Good.”|
Implemented in phases, LAP provided direct support and education to farm seekers and improved the conditions for accessing land. Project collaborators also worked with landowners, transitioning farm families, communities, policymakers, and a wide range of service providers.

Core financial support for the Land Access Project was provided by grants from the USDA/NIFA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program.
Matching funds were also provided by several private foundations, along with thousands of hours of in-kind matching support from cooperating organizations and professionals. We are grateful for the collaboration and partnership that made this project possible.
