Transitioning farms to a new generation represents a substantial challenge in New York. American Farmland Trust has spent this winter talking to young farmers at places like the Northeast Organic Farmers Association’s New York conference. “What we hear time and again is that the biggest challenge facing beginning farmers is finding productive farmland that is affordable. We are trying to help,” says American Farmland Trust’s New York State Director David Haight. At the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Groupconference, we talked about Farmland for the Next Generation,sharing information on our Farmland Advisors training program and the development of the Greater Hudson Valley Farm Link Network.
