Farmland for a New Generation New York (FNGNY) is a program coordinated by American Farmland Trust – in partnership with the State of New York, agricultural organizations, land trusts, and others – that helps farmers seeking land and landowners who want to keep their land in farming.
FNGNY offers the New York Farmland Finder website, a comprehensive tool that includes the listings of available farm properties and farmers seeking land, on-farm jobs, events, and resources as well as a statewide network of Regional Navigators, or partner organizations with dedicated staff, that provide training and on-the-ground customized support for farmers and landowners.
FNGNY offers services to help farmland seekers – new farmers and younger generations of farm families – while supporting retiring farmers and other farmland owners in successfully transferring their farms. This statewide website and support from American Farmland Trust staff and Regional Navigators includes:
- An online directory of available farm properties across New York and profiles of farmers in search of land
- Trainings, materials, and model documents to educate and support farmers and landowners
- Experienced staff who offer a first point of contact to navigate key topics tied to accessing and transferring farmland
- A pathway to find and access more technical expertise available to support farmers and landowners
Please contact us or a Regional Navigator with questions and to receive assistance with finding your farm, developing your farm succession plans, preparing your land for agriculture, or conserving your farm.
