Land Link Programs in the Northeast U.S.: A Program Assessment and Lessons Learned

This report summarizes the activities and outcomes of land link programs in the Northeast U.S., and provides key recommendations to existing and new programs. Land link programs focus on issues related to farmland access, transfer and succession for the current and coming generations of U.S. farmers. They connect farmland seekers to land and land owners, and may connect participants to resources that prepare them to make good land access and use decisions. This report is based on interviews with Northeastern land link program staff and a survey of seekers and owners who participate in these programs.
