Event description

Description

Accessing land is one of the most complex financial decisions that you will make as a farmer. Join NYFC, Organic Growers School, Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy, and NC State Extension FarmLink in a workshop designed to prepare early career farmers to approach land access with confidence.

You will learn about:

  • Searching for farmland in Western North Carolina and the greater region
  • Finding help to evaluate farm properties
  • The financing process for different methods of accessing land
  • Working with a land trust
  • Financial planning using NYFC's Finding Farmland Calculator
  • Case studies of other farmers' paths to land access

The training is offered at a sliding scale registration rate. We will provide lunch and refreshments throughout the day.

We ask all participants to complete our pre- and post-surveys to help us improve our work.



This project is supported by a grant from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture through its Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program, #2016-70017-25499.
