Saratoga PLAN

Saratoga PLAN is a private, independent not-for-profit organization serving the people and communities of Saratoga County so they can accomplish their goals of preserving rural character, wildlife habitats, and scenic beauty, ensuring that this region remains a wonderful place to live, visit, work and farm for generations to come. Saratoga PLAN has conserved over 3,200 acres of farmland to date and has over 1,400 acres in active farmland conservation projects. PLAN acknowledges that the lands it conserves are ancestral homelands of Mohican, Mohawk and Abenaki people.

Our Farmland Access programming focused on Saratoga County includes connecting farmland owners and farmers seeking land as well as hosting workshops, distributing publications and providing direct consultations with farmers and non-farming farmland owners on topics including evaluation of farmland, farmland leasing, farmland needs for new and beginning farmers, farmland conservation and more.
