We serve farmers, ranchers & fishers with a focus on core business fundamentals: access to appropriate financing, specialized business education, and access to land and high-quality land tenure.
Our clients benefit from affordable loans, learning alongside other farmers and fishers, and getting one-on-one technical assistance. Investing in a career producing food has always been risky but also highly rewarding. We have shaped our programs to help people reduce risk and gain access to support for establishing resilient farm, ranch, and fishing businesses.
Designed to support farmers and ranchers, our farm loans can be used for everything from regular operating costs to purchasing land.
Get financing for permits, gear, working capital, vessel purchase or other needs with fair and affordable access to loan capital.
Many farmers cannot take advantage of public conservation programs due to limited funds. We created a solution.
Many farmers and ranchers struggle to access land or cannot achieve secure land tenure. Our custom-built Land Portal connects landseekers and landholders.
The Land Portal helps you search for land but it’s also about creating relationships and supporting good land tenure. The enrollment process includes landseekers demonstrating their interests and experience.
Land listings are valuable opportunities for the people we serve. With our Land Portal you can learn about and connect with landseekers. Each land listing is evaluated by staff to help demonstrate its value.
Do you need a better land tenure agreement? We can help develop and negotiate land tenure and other agreements.
We clarify needs and expectations from both parties to build an equitable land tenure or sale-of-business agreement.
There are no one-size-fits-all solutions to quality land tenure. Our tools can address a wide variety of concerns.
“I hand-wrote leases myself, I made them up out of my brain with nothing, because the landowner wanted something simple. He wanted one paragraph. But this arrangement [with Bear Yuba Land Trust & supported by FarmLink] is much more comprehensive.”
