Farmland Access—
What is it and why is it important?

Access to land and infrastructure is a necessity for willing and capable farmers to grow food, fiber, and other crops. For a producer, “farmland access” means tenure, which translates to control of land via ownership or secure rental agreements. Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the next generation of farmers to find affordable farmland and achieve tenure.

What We Do

We are exploring alternative land access models, working to influence policy changes, and developing farmland access programs, including the Farmland Access Navigator Program, which pairs land-seeking farmers with an advocate who can provide guidance and resources to help farmers on their land access journey. The Hub also offers assistance to farmland owners hoping to transition their land to new farmers.



  • Get (and keep) more farmers on the land

  • Protect farmland for future generations

  • Ensure responsible stewardship for a healthier future for all
