Webinars on Farm Access and Transfer Strategies in New York and New England Available

On November 23 and 24, 2015, American Farmland Trust and Land For Good hosted two Webinars to discuss the results of our Gaining Insights, Gaining Access project.

These Webinars are intended for land conservation organizations, agricultural service providers and policymakers. We hope they will help inform services, programming and policies around farm succession, transfer planning and land access.

Additional state-level findings from the Gaining Insights, Gaining Access project—including the 2012 Census of Agriculture special tabulation and the focus groups of farmers without identified successors--will be available soon. Please check back in January 2016 for these state-level profiles.

Recordings of the two Webinars are available below.

Webinar 1 - November 23, 2015 - Gaining Insights, Gaining Access: Using New Data To Inform Farm Transfer and Land Access

Webinar 2 - November 24, 2015 - Gaining Insights, Gaining Access: Lessons Learned From Senior Farmers Without Successors

In addition, we have made the following attachments related to the Webinars available for download:
