Frequently Asked Questions:

What if the leased premises include perennial crops, such as orchards, blueberries or other agroforestry crops?

The lease should specifically address how these crops will be valued, what will occur at the end of their productive life. If the tenant plants perennial crops on the premises, the lease should address this too. See Inspirations for Creating a Long-Term Agricultural Lease for Agroforestry: A Workbook from Farm Commons and the Savanna Institute. This guide addresses long-term leases involving agroforestry, including ways to account for the value of perennial crops and trees.
