The Center for Agriculture and Food Systems (CAFS) at Vermont Law School has launched a new online resource, the Farmland Access Legal Toolkit, to help farmers and landowners affordably access, transfer, and conserve farmland. The free, online toolkit provides a user-friendly guide for farmers who need land to farm, and for farmers who seek to transition their land to another farmer as part of estate planning or for other reasons. The toolkit explains legal arrangements that provide farmers more affordable and equitable farmland access and help landowners balance earning income for retirement with making their land affordable to the next generation of farmers. Tools covered range from creative leasing to affirmative agricultural easements.
