The Finding Land To Farm page provides information about:
- Finding land for sale
- Tips for finding land
- A state-by-state listing of Land-Link programs
- And more…
Individuals interested in purchasing farmland might also be interested in our Funding (Loans/Grants) Page, which lists resources related to funding land purchases and other needs.
This page is organized into three main sections:
- General Resources about finding land to farm, both national and regional.
- Land listing services, both national and regional.
- LandLink programs by state. LandLink programs “link retirement and farm exit approaches with farm entry strategies.” For additional information on LandLink programs visit the International Farm Transition network (IFTN).
