Workshop Series Helps Farmers Access Farmland and Pass on the Family Farm

Workshop SeriesThe Hudson Valley Farmlink Network (HVFN), is a partnership of organizations, coordinated by American Farmland Trust, dedicated to facilitating farm transfers and making farmland accessible to the next generation of farmers in the Hudson Valley. This spring, HVFN launched a series of workshops. On April 8, 45 participants attended a Farm Transfer and Estate Planning workshop in Greenwich co-hosted by the Agricultural Stewardship Association and NY FarmNet/NY FarmLink. “I really appreciated HVFN bringing this workshop to Greenwich,” said John Hand of Hand Melon Farm. “It’s the jump start farmers need to start the planning process.” On May 6 a Farm Leasing for Farmers and Landowners workshop will be held at SUNY Orange in Newburgh. The panel will feature local farmers and landowners with leasing experience as well as legal expertise from Maryanne McGovern, Kenyon, Schwartzberg and Kenyon, PLLC, and George Lithco, Jacobowitz and Gubits, LLP. This workshop is co-hosted by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Orange County, GrowNYC, and the Orange County Land Trust.
