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.


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. 


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.
