Looking for farmland? Have land to rent?

Farms at Work has developed a free, searchable online tool that will connect owners of farmland with farmers seeking land to rent. It also has great potential to build the necessary connections for farm business succession.

Help keep farmland in production!

Find Farmland will make it easier for farmland owners and farmers to connect. It’s a win-win for farmland protection and succession!
