Maine Farmland Access and Transfer Conference

December 3

For farm seekers, retiring farmers, land owners & service providers.

Join us for a day of practical workshops to better understand the options, resources, and steps to accessing or transferring your farm or farmland.

  • Are you a farmer wondering what will happen when you’re ready to stop farming?
  • Are you a farmer looking for land?
  • Are you a landowner thinking about making your property available for farming?
  • Are you a service provider who helps with issues related to farmland access?

Learn strategies for keeping your farmland in production including how to tackle succession planning, plus how to find and secure farmland of your own, negotiate a good lease agreement, and more.

Jonah Fertig-Burd, CDI’s Director of Cooperative Food Systems, will be co-presenting at this annual conference about worker co-op farms and conversion of existing farms into worker-ownership. CDI is also a co-sponsor of this conference.
