Finding Land to Farm

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:

  1. General Resources about finding land to farm, both national and regional.
  2. Land listing services, both national and regional.
  3. 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).
