Mandy Davis at the Intervale Center and Ben Waterman at the Center for Sustainable Agriculture have developed a Farmland Checklist to help new farmers evaluate farmland they are thinking of renting or buying.
They are looking for farmers willing to test out the tool – Ideally, farmers would use this tool to evaluate an actual property, whether it be a site they are currently leasing, interested in leasing or even a neighbor’s property. In particular, we’d love to have comments from livestock producers, though anyone interested and anyone actively seeking land should be in touch with me to learn more about the review process.
They can reimburse farmers $25 for their time.
If you’d like to help out, please contact Mandy Davis directly for details and to get the checklist!
