Calling all new and aspiring farmers! Accessing farmland is one of the most complex financial decisions that any farmer will make. The National Young Farmers Coalition, along with Land for Good, Maine Farmland Trust and MOFGA are hosting a land access financials training for farmers next week in Unity ME. It’s designed for aspiring and new career farmers who they want to help along their land access journey with confidence.
During the workshop you will learn about:
- The various programs already available for farmers seeking land in Maine.
- Creative methods of securing land tenure.
- Financing and affordability tools.
- Working with a land trust to find and acquire land.
The workshop is completely free and refreshments will be provided. Click HERE to register.
If you cannot make the workshop, NYFC have also set up this really cool and useful website to assist farmers in finding land and figuring out the financials of doing so.
