Farmland for a New Generation New York (FNG-NY) 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.
HOW WE WORK
We provide resources and services to help farmland seekers – new farmers and younger generations of farm families – while supporting elder generations and other farmland owners in successfully transferring their farms.
FNG-NY offers the New York Farmland Finder website, which includes a directory of available farm properties across the state and profiles of farmers seeking land, listings of on-farm jobs, upcoming events, and a searchable library of resources to educate and support farmers and landowners.
We also coordinate 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.
ABOUT OUR TEAM
American Farmland Trust staff serve as the first point of contact for farmers and landowners seeking support from the Farmland for a New Generation New York program.
Collectively, the FNG-NY team has a broad range of experience in key topics related to accessing and transferring land, including developing farm business or succession plans, evaluating farm properties, preparing land for agriculture, fostering equitable land access, conserving farmland, and more. Each profile created on the New York Farmland Finder website is reviewed by our staff and offered individual support.
