Upcoming Webinars on Farm Transfer and Land Access in New England
A new tabulation of 2012 Census of Agriculture figures shows more than 90 percent of retirement-age farmers in New York and New England do not have a young farm operator farming alongside them.
In addition, the majority of the region's beginning farmers are over age 45, and the number of young farm operators continues to drop.
Join American Farmland Trust and Land for Good at noon EST on November 23rd and 24th for two one-hour Webinars that explore what these and other research findings mean for programing and policies around land access, farm transfer and succession planning.
