6th Annual Farmland Access & Transfer Conference

November 16, 2020 - November 18, 2020

Free – $45

6th Annual Farmland Access & Transfer Conference
Monday, November 16th- Wednesday, November 18th from 1-5PM

Virtual Conference



As the largest conference in New England that focuses solely on the issues of farmland access, tenure and transfer, this has become a critical convening for participants across the region.  

Farmers, landowners and farm advocates across New England will learn and share ideas of the pivotal role farmers and farmland play in shaping the future of our regional food system. Hosted by MFT and Land For Good, we are happy to expand the opportunity for more people to attend by taking the conference online this year! 

To acknowledge the history of injustice and violence that has shaped access to land and our food system—and its ongoing legacy—this year’s conference aims to feature a wider range of diverse voices and perspectives on farmland access in our region. Through this conference and beyond, these organizations are committed to dialogue and awareness raising about inequities and injustices related to farmland access; to critically examine our roles and biases in perpetuating inequities, and to strive for more just and inclusive paths forward around farmland access and tenure.

When you register, you’ll have access to pre-recorded webinars that you can watch on your own time, live interactive sessions via zoom (which will also be recorded and available to conference registrants), and links to accompanying resources. Registration is available on a sliding scale.  We hope you’ll join us!
