Land Link and New Farmer Training: Progress!
Connecting land owners with farmers… Land Link Montgomery has been gaining traction and news is spreading that this program is helping to address the primary challenge to bringing new farmers to Montgmery’s Ag Reserve: access to affordable acreage. MCA is working with Montgomery County Department of Economic Development to ensure broad outreach and land owner education about the benefits of Land Link.
We are also identifying host farms for new farm start up and farm mentoring programs. These two new linkages will provide new farm businesses with necessary acreage to grow their business and, importantly, provide on farm training for our new farmers.
