learn about leasing
Here's an opportunity to learn more about leasing farmland in Connecticut:
American Farmland Trust, University of Connecticut (UConn), and the USDA Risk Management Agency are offering two chances to join our upcoming webinar: Farmland ConneCTions: Leasing Farmland in Connecticut.
Leasing farmland from towns, institutions and land trusts provides an opportunity for beginning and expanding farmers to access land as they embark on a new farm venture or grow their farm business.
Two upcoming webinars will cover issues and topics related to leasing farmland in Connecticut, including tenure options, practical and legal considerations in drafting a lease, and issues that commonly arise in farmland leasing. We will also share some examples of community farms and discuss sustainable agriculture methods that may be included in lease agreements. This presentation is intended to share much of the content of our newly-released guide, Farmland ConneCTions: A Guide for Connecticut Towns, Land Trusts, and Institutions Using or Leasing Farmland.
