If you're a landowner interested leasing your property to a farmer, FarmLink can help you market your property to a database of hundreds of beginning and existing farmers and also help you navigate the lease negotiation so it is a win-win for you and your tenant.
We have recently implemented some exciting changes to our website that will allow farmers to connect directly with you. If you encounter any technical glitches with the new Dashboard, send us a message.
- Create a Landowner Profile. If you have previously filled out an intake form, you may be able to skip to step 3. You will be prompted to renew your membership if you have not done so within the past year.
- Become a member of California FarmLink. You will receive an email about how to become a member once you create your profile. Memberships are $15 and are valid for one year. If you have previously paid a membership fee within the last year, your membership will be activated automatically.
- Register for a Land Linking Dashboard account. If you have previously filled out an intake form, make sure to register with the same email address you used when you first signed up. You will only be able to register once you have created a Profile and become a member.
- Login to the Land Linking Dashboard and submit your Land Listing. New listings must be approved by a FarmLink Regional Coordinator. Once they are approved, they will be posted on the website and your contact information will be shared with logged in land-seeking farmers.
We recommend that you prepare for your first communication with a farmer by putting some thought into what type of operation and tenant relationship you are looking for.
