Ensuring the availability of farmland in the Hudson Valley for the famers of today and tomorrow
In response to farmland loss, the challenges faced by farmers in accessing farmland and the difficulties faced by families as they try to transfer their farms, agriculture and conservation groups came together to create the Hudson Valley Farmlink Network. The Hudson Valley Farmlink Network is a partnership of 15 organizations, coordinated by American Farmland Trust, offering the Hudson Valley Farmland Finder website, training and networking events, and one-on-one assistance for farmers and landowners.
The Hudson Valley Farmlink Network serves 13 counties: Albany, Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Rensselaer, Rockland, Saratoga, Sullivan, Ulster, Washington, and Westchester.
