Montgomery County Land Link ~ Helping Farmers and Farmland Find Each Other
Montgomery County Land Link seeks to “link” beginner and experienced farmers with available land and farms within Montgomery County.
There are many challenges facing young and expanding farmers in Montgomery County: extraordinarily high land prices, a decrease in funding for programs that help young people afford farms, and not having farmland in the family. As the demand for local food grows and population increases, it will become more and more imperative to fortify and strengthen the local food system. Local food systems depend on local farmers and local land to survive. Land Link’s vision is to offer a program that links aspiring and expanding farmers to landowners through a simple database, ensuring that Montgomery County is continuing to build a strong local food system.
