Farmland Access and Transfer Conference

December 3, 2018
Augusta Civic Center

Augusta, Maine Nearly 30% of New England’s farmers are likely to exit farming in the next 10+ years, and 9 out of 10 of them are farming without a young farmer alongside. At the same time, access to land is one of the biggest challenges for beginning farmers in New England. Farmers, landowners, and farm advocates are invited to the fourth annual Farmland Access & Transfer Conference on December 3, 2018 at the Augusta Civic Center, Augusta ME co-hosted by Maine Farmland Trust and Land For Good. Learn strategies for tackling succession planning and incorporating a conservation easement into your farm access or transfer plan, plus how to find and secure farmland of your own, negotiate a good lease agreement, and more. It’s the largest conference in the region focused solely on land access. For more information or to register, go to 4th Annual Farmland Access & Transfer Conference.
