About Us

Values & Principles

FarmLink has been operating since 1999, and over the years we have identified these values and principles to guide our work:

Equitable Access to Opportunity:

We value opportunities for beginning, immigrant, and women farmers and ranchers, and farmers of color, to establish themselves in California agriculture.

Creativity and Innovation:

We value innovative tools and strategies that support and connect farmers and ranchers with land, financing, and assistance.

Partnership and Commitment:

We value long-term relationships with farmers, landowners, and other partners that create and sustain opportunities for beginning farmers and ranchers.

Environmental Stewardship:

We value good land stewardship and resilient working landscapes that provide the basis for sustainable and organic agriculture.

Honesty and Fairness:

In the high-stakes business of agriculture, we value fairness, accountability, and transparency in our work to connect people with land and financing.

Learning and Growth:

We value continuing education and learning from diverse farmers and ranchers who inform, teach, and inspire us to improve our work.
