“The Hudson Valley Farmlink Network is a collaborative group of partner organizations providing one-on-one assistance, referral services and other resources to help farmers and farmland owners with finding and accessing farmland, connecting with farmers, transferring farmland to a new generation as well as protecting farmland so it remains in agriculture and available to farmers now and into the future. Farmers and farmland owners should visit the Hudson Valley Farmland Finder website to learn more and to get in touch.” – Tim Biello, Hudson Valley Farmlink Network Coordinator, American Farmland Trust

Farmer-Landowner Connections: Farmers and Landowners can make connections on the Hudson Valley Farmland Finder website. If you are a farm seeker, you can create a farmer profile detailing your experience, your farming plans, and the land you are seeking. As a farmland owner, you can create a Farm Profile describing your farm property and whether you are looking to sell the property, lease the farm, or find a farm manager or partner.
