New Program to Help New York Farmers Find Farmland

New Program to Help New York Farmers Find Farmland

American Farmland Trust, the State of New York, agricultural organizations, land trusts, and others have launched Farmland for a New Generation New York, a program to help existing farmers, new farmers, and younger generations of farm families access farmland while supporting retiring farmers and landowners. Farmland for a New Generation New York offers a Resource Center coordinated by American Farmland Trust with expert advisors, as well as a website (nyfarmlandfinder.org) featuring training materials and a listing of farmers in search of land and land available for farming throughout the state. The program will also support a network of Regional Navigators, or partner organizations with dedicated staff that will provide trainings and on-the-ground customized support for farmers and landowners in regions across New York.
