Conservation and Affordability of Working Lands: Nine Case Studies of Land Trusts Working With Next Generation Farmers
Finding affordable land continues to be one of the biggest obstacles facing beginning farmers and ranchers. Land trusts, which have long protected farmland from development, are in a unique position to help new farmers access land. California FarmLink seeks to increase our collaboration with land trusts and other conservation groups that believe agricultural lands are best preserved by promoting secure tenure for the farmers and ranchers who steward them. Check out our new publication that contains nine examples of how land trusts and other conservation groups are helping farmers and ranchers overcome barriers to accessing land.
