In California and across the nation, next generation farmers struggle to access land. Too often beginning and next-generation farmers don’t achieve secure land tenure. This makes it difficult to invest in and grow a farm business. Meanwhile, retiring farmers can struggle to transition their businesses to the next generation. Our land listings help you find land, and our technical assistance work helps to develop secure lease and/or purchase agreements.
If you’re a farmer with 2+ years of commercial farming experience (earning farm income) and significant field experience or farm training, work with us! Or if you have a land opportunity, or you’re looking for a farm successor, we invite you to work with us, too!
This website hosts Land Listings across California divided into three diverse ag regions: Central Coast, Central Valley and North Coast. There is a nominal annual fee of $15 with details on the registration pages. Please join us today.
New in 2018: Landseekers can create a profile that’s only visible to other registrants. Share your aspirations, interests, and credentials. People in our network will be able to message you.
FarmLink’s experience and commitment
Over the past five years we’ve hosted nearly 400 land listings. Our staff have provided technical assistance on hundreds of acres – and around 40-50 lease or purchase deals annually. Every land opportunity is unique: reflecting the local market and individual circumstances.
We’re always working to create affordable, equitable access to land, with secure land tenure that supports investment in stewardship and ecological resilience. And we want retiring farm and ranch business owners to successfully transition to the next generation. We’re helping to sustain the farms and ranches that sustain us. Join in supporting this work.
