American Farmland Trust has assembled a team of experts to help you develop a personal strategy for making this happen.  Come to Harvesting Opportunities in New York: Growing Local Food Economies & Protecting Farmland, November 20 in Albany, and participate in Farmland for the Next Generation of Farmers.  This day-long track of workshops will help farmers learn about and develop strategies for accessing farmland.  At the conference you will learn about:

  •         Working with Land Trusts and Other Partners to Make Farmland More Affordable
  •         Leasing Farmland and Managing Risk in the Process
  •         Developing a Personalized Farmland Access Plan

What will you do at the conference?  Work directly with a team of professional advisors to outline your own strategy for securing farmland and then review your plan with our expert panel made up of:

  •         a lawyer
  •         a banker and tax specialist
  •         a government loan officer
  •         a farm manager
  •         an agricultural mediator
